NCAA reinstates Montana State running back

Bozeman, MT (Sports Network) - The NCAA reinstated Montana State running back Orenzo Davis' eligibility after the Big Sky Conference university appealed an undisclosed violation of NCAA eligibility rules.

Montana State announced Friday that Davis is eligible immediately. The NCAA declared him ineligible earlier this winter, but the reason was not announced because of privacy issues.

As a junior last season, he led the team in rushing with 1,126 yards and earned second-team All-Big Sky honors.

The Bobcats shared the Big Sky title with eventual FCS champion Eastern Washington during a 9-3 season.
