LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville says that senior running back Michael Dyer is academically ineligible and will miss the Cardinals’ Belk Bowl game on Dec. 30 against Georgia.

Dyer, the former Auburn star who transferred to Louisville last year from Arkansas Baptist College, was the fourth-leading rusher for the Cardinals with 481 yards and five touchdowns after missing the first three games with a thigh injury.

The school announced Dyer’s status in an email late Tuesday night.

Dyer rushed for 223 yards and two TDs last season before being sidelined by injuries late in the year. At Auburn he rushed for more than 1,000 yards in both of his seasons there and was named the MVP of the 2011 BCS championship game.
