Badger immediately eligible at BYU
By Matt Fortuna
Former Notre Dame safety
was granted immediate eligibility Thursday by the NCAA, a little more than three weeks after Badger transferred to BYU.
Badger, a Provo, Utah native,
filed the appeal for a waiver because of a reported personal hardship
He signed with the Irish in 2010 and enrolled in January before taking a two-year mission in Ecuador for the LDS Church.
Badger, a sophomore, was buried on the depth chart at Notre Dame entering the season and did not figure to see significant action.
The Cougars actually travel to South Bend, Ind., for the Irish's senior day on Nov. 23.
