NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Syracuse has suspended sophomore tailback Adonis Ameen-Moore and reserve tight end Max Beaulieu for the Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday for violating athletic department rules.

Head coach Doug Marrone announced the suspensions in an email that did not elaborate on what the players had done.

Ameen-Moore, who was used mainly in the Orange’s short-yardage formation, gained 108 yards on 30 carries and scored six touchdowns in the six games he played. Beaulieu played in just one game this season, a home win over UConn.

Starting outside linebacker Marquis Spruill also has been disciplined. He will not play “a significant portion” of the Pinstripe Bowl against West Virginia.

Spruill and running back Steve Rene were arrested Dec. 2 and charged with misdemeanors after scuffling with Syracuse Police. Marrone did not specify how much of the game Spruill will miss. The junior is fourth on the team in tackles with 62 and is a three-year starter.

This year’s clash will be the third annual bowl game — the sixth total college football game — at the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
