Rodgers cleared to play

Oregon State senior receiver James Rodgers will return to the Oregon State active lineup this Saturday when the Beavers host the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 Conference opener for both teams, head coach Mike Riley announced Wednesday. Kickoff is set for 12:38 p.m. in a game that is being televised nationally by Prime Ticket and Fox College Sports, and is also available on Beaver Nation Online via osubeavers.com except in the state of California.

Rodgers underwent two knee surgeries after suffering the year-ending injury, while scoring a touchdown that was called back due to penalty, in OSU's upset victory at then No. 9 Arizona 29-27 on Oct. 9, 2010. He was granted a fifth year of eligibility as he was eligible per NCAA rules for a medical hardship.

The Richmond, Texas native is a two-time All-Pac-10 Conference selection as a receiver and returner, and has also earned third team All-America honors. He is fourth at OSU for career receiving yards with 2,064 and third for receptions with 177. He holds the school record for all-purpose yards with 5,784, which currently ranks fourth among active FBS players.

Approximately 700 tickets remain for Saturday's game and are available by calling 1-800-Go-BEAVS, by visiting the OSU Ticket Office during normal business hours or online at osubeavers.com.
