Ole Miss QB Jeremiah Masoli is clear to play

BILOXI (WLOX) - Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has been cleared by the NCAA to play immediately after winning an appeal Friday afternoon.

Masoli, who transferred to Ole Miss after he was dismissed from the Oregon program this summer, was ruled ineligible on Tuesday. But a decision by the NCAA Division I Subcommittee for Legislative Relief overturned that ruling today.

Nathan Stanley is expected to start for the Rebels against Jacksonville State, with Masoli serving as the backup.
