OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - It turns out Mississippi quarterback
Jeremiah Masoli can now play for the Rebels immediately.
The NCAA had ruled that the former Oregon quarterback had to sit
out a season after enrolling at Mississippi. But Mississippi
appealed that decision and announced Friday that the NCAA Division
I Subcommittee for Legislative Relief had ruled that Masoli can
play this season.
According to NCAA rules, football graduate student-athletes must
receive a waiver in order to compete if they enroll at a university
other than the one where they received their undergraduate degree.
Ole Miss plays Jacksonville State on Saturday.
