USC fifth-year linebacker Dustin Lindsey became the third Gamecocks' player ruled ineligible for the Outback Bowl when the NCAA denied Lindsey's appeal, sources told The State on Monday.

Lindsey, an Alabama native who failed out of school following the 2005 Independence Bowl before returning the following year, joins strong safety Emanuel Cook and offensive lineman Kyle Nunn. All failed to pass the mandatory six credit hours this semester required by the NCAA to be eligible for a bowl game.

Punter Spencer Lanning is awaiting word on his appeal.
