CINCINNATI (AP) -The NCAA has turned down Cincinnati quarterback Ben Mauk's request for another season of eligibility. The rejection is a setback for the up-and-coming Big East team that finished with a No. 17 ranking.
A person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Thursday of the decision. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement has not been made.
Mauk overcame a career-threatening shoulder injury while leading the Bearcats to 10 victories last season. Among them was a 31-21 win over Southern Mississippi in the Papajohns.com Bowl. Mauk threw for 31 touchdowns and more than 3,121 yards.
He broke his passing arm and dislocated his shoulder in the 2006 season opener while playing for Wake Forest. Mauk asked the NCAA for another year of eligibility to make up for that lost season.
