Stevan Ridley #34 of the Louisiana State University Tigers scores the go-ahead toucdown in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against the Ole Miss Rebels at Tiger Stadium on November 20, 2010 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


LSU running back Stevan Ridley may be forced to miss the AT&T Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M (No. 17 BCS, No. 18 AP) because of an academic violation.

Coach Les Miles, who discussed Ridley's status after the No. 11 Tigers completed pre-Christmas workouts on Wednesday, said LSU is appealing to the NCAA in hopes that Ridley can still suit up when LSU (10-2) meets the Aggies (9-3) in Cowboys Stadium on Jan. 7.
