The NCAA said in a statement that Gurley, who has already missed two games for the No. 11 Bulldogs, would be eligible to return Nov. 15 against Auburn.

Georgia is nearing the three-week mark since Gurley, a star tailback who had been among the top Heisman Trophy candidates, was indefinitely suspended Oct. 9 while the school investigated allegations he received improper benefits for signing autographs.
Georgia issued the following statement regarding the NCAA's decision:
