Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre said running back Josh Ford's appeal to the NCAA for a sixth season of eligibility has been denied, ending his college career.

Ford, a product of Mullen High School, spent four seasons on the CU roster at running back after transferring from Barton Community College in Kansas. He played in two of his four seasons. He redshirted in 2010 and missed all of last season after suffering a high ankle sprain in August that kept him out all season.

Ford is scheduled to graduate in May with a degree in sociology.
