The NCAA came forward Sunday to say that it will levy "corrective and punitive measures" against Penn State University.

The sanctions will be spelled out Monday at 8:00 a.m. and Comcast SportsNet will interrupt its regularly-scheduled programming to carry the press conference LIVE.

It will also be available streaming LIVE on CSNChicago.com by clicking here.

If early indications are true, Monday's press conference could bring historic news and discipline to Penn State for their actions in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Last week, NCAA President Mark Emmert said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal, saying he had "never seen anything as egregious."

According to a CBSSports.com report, a source said Penn State will face "unprecedented" penalties, which could be so unique and severe that they would be different than any ever levied by the NCAA.

"I've never seen anything like it," the source said.

One penalty is believed to be a fine in the range of 30-60 million.
