OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - All-America receiver Dez Bryant has lost his final appeal to be reinstated by the NCAA this season.

Bryant has sat out the last five games for No. 18 Oklahoma State (6-2, 3-1 Big 12) after the school ruled him ineligible for lying to an NCAA investigator looking into Bryant's offseason meeting with former NFL player Deion Sanders.

The NCAA decided last week that Bryant should be suspended until next September, and OSU appealed to the NCAA's Student-Athlete
Reinstatement Committee.

That group announced Thursday that it had rejected Bryant's appeal.

Bryant caught 87 passes for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns last season while also scoring twice on punt returns. The junior is eligible to enter next year's NFL draft.
