MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -The NCAA has cleared West Virginia defensive lineman Pat Liebig to play this season.
Mountaineers coach Bill Stewart announced Liebig's eligibility had been approved Tuesday.
The 6-foot-4 Liebig last played in the Gator Bowl after the 2006 season and has 39 career tackles. He sat out the 2007 season, returning home to Florida to run his family business and to care for his ailing father.
After the business was sold and his father's health improved, Liebig petitioned the NCAA for a sixth year of eligibility.
