Help in the secondary is on the way for the BYU Cougars, but whether the reinforcement will play in Saturday's rivalry game against Utah is anybody's guess.
Thursday, the NCAA approved a waiver request by BYU on behalf of safety Chris Badger, who has been trying to transfer from Notre Dame to BYU. The waiver means Badger, who has been practicing with the Cougars since the first of the month, is immediately eligible for competition.
Badger is considered a redshirt freshman.
He transferred to BYU, and asked the NCAA for the waiver, to be closer to his mother, who is experiencing some difficulties.<
