PROVO, Utah (AP) — BYU says the NCAA approved a waiver that will allow Notre Dame transfer safety Chris Badger to play immediately.

Badger, a Provo native, enrolled at Notre Dame out of high school, but went on a two-year Mormon mission and put off college. He redshirted at Notre Dame last year then decided to transfer to BYU to be near his ill mother.

The NCAA granted his request to waive the transfer requirement to sit out another full season.

BYU plays at Notre Dame on Nov. 23.
