FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Arkansas officials say Darren McFadden
will play in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day.
Last week, the university said it was reviewing a media report
that linked McFadden and a sports agent to the purchase of a new
Cadillac Escalade. Arkansas television station KARK has since
backed off the report, apologizing to McFadden and his family.
A statement released Monday by the university said: ``The
University of Arkansas has conducted a thorough review of
allegations reported in the media concerning Darren McFadden. Based
upon the institution's review, Mr. McFadden remains eligible and
will participate in the 2008 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic.''
