TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The University of Tulsa says senior safety Demarco Nelson will miss the season opener at Bowling Green Thursday night because of academic ineligibility.

The school says Nelson is ineligible per the NCAA's Progress Toward Degree Requirement.

Nelson's eligibility for the rest of the season is pending review after an appeal was submitted by the university on Tuesday.

Nelson is a four-year senior from Glenpool.
