Posted: Updated:

CMU Football announced today that it suspended three players for the Little Ceasar's Bowl in Detroit.

Sophomore receivers Defarrel Davis, Titus Davis, and Courtney Williams will not play against Western Kentucky December 26th because of an undisclosed violation of team policy.

Defarrel Davis has not registered a catch this season, but did return 7 kicks for 170 yards.

Athletic Director Dave Heeke released the following statement:

"Our student-athletes operate in accordance with an established code of conduct, and they are held accountable for upholding those standards. We are looking forward to a great bowl experience for our program and fans and a great game against Western Kentucky."
