LSU Running Back Cleared to Play in the 2011 Cotton Bowl

The LSU Tigers got great news on Monday. They found out their top running back Stevan Ridley would be eligible to play in the 2011 Cotton Bowl on Friday night. The Tigers will take on the Texas A&M Aggies at Cowboys Stadium.

Ridley was initially ruled ineligible on December 22nd for a “one time” academic violation. The Tigers appealed the ruling, and Ridley was found eligible to play.

On the season, Ridley ran the football 225 times for 1042 yards and 14 touchdowns. This comes after last season, where he was only able to get into the end zone four times for the Tigers.

LSU comes into the game with a 10-2 record, while the Aggies have won five straight games and are 10-3 coming into the game. The Tigers finished the regular season ranked 30th in the country with 179.2 rushing yards per game.
