Oklahoma State offensive lineman Jonathan Rush will appear at Payne County Courthouse at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday for arraignment after being charged with one count of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia last month.

Cowboy defensive tackle Christian Littlehead, who was charged with the same crime after two homemade smoking devices with residue were found in the teammates' on-campus residence, is scheduled to appear on Jan. 23 at 10:30 a.m. His original court date was set for Dec. 29, but that was pushed back because Littlehead was in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl. Littlehead traveled with the team but was suspended for the game.

Rush, who missed most of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in OSU's win at Texas A&M in September, has not been disciplined by the team. He has been granted a sixth year of eligibility.

STATE TEAMS DROP ONE SPOT

NAIA voters did not punish the Oklahoma Baptist men's and Oklahoma City women's basketball teams too much after each lost their first games of the season last week. OBU, which lost to Southern Nazarene, fell from No. 1 to No. 2. It was the same scenario for OCU, which lost its first game last weekend, by 22 points to Lubbock Christian.
