According to a release from the athletic department, senior offensive lineman Nick Cody and junior defensive lineman Axel McQuaw will not make the trip to Arizona because they failed to meet minimum NCAA academic requirements for postseason participation.

Cody started the first six games of 2012 while McQuaw, a non-scholarship player from Yachats, Oregon did not appear in a game this season after seeing limited action as a reserve three times a season ago.
