FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2010, file photo, LSU running back Stevan Ridley (34) celebrates as he scores a touchdown during an NCAA college football game against Mississippi in Baton Rouge, La. A person familiar with Ridley's eligibility status says the Tigers' leading rusher has been cleared to play against Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl on Friday, Jan. 7. Ridley's eligibility had been in doubt since head coach Les Miles said on Dec. 22 that the running back could miss the game because of an unspecified "one-time" academic violation.
