Coach Mark Dantonio announced the senior linebacker's punishment but did not reveal what team rules he violated.
Michigan State linebacker 's Max Bullough, a senior captain, was all smiles following a 29-6 victory over Michigan in November. But Bullough will not play for the Spartans in the Rose Bowl because he has been suspended for a violation of team rules.
Michigan State suspended senior linebacker Max Bullough for violating team rules, making him ineligible to play in the Rose Bowl.
Coach Mark Dantonio said in a news release early Thursday that Bullough was suspended for the rest of the season. He did not say what rules Bullough violated and said there will be no further comment.
The No. 4 Spartans play No. 5 Stanford in the Rose Bowl Jan. 1, Michigan State’s first appearance in the game in 26 seasons.
Bullough is a two-time team captain who had 76 tackles this season and 299 career tackles. He also was named a third-team All-America and first-team All-Big Ten this season.
Dantonio said in the statement Bullough will remain a “valued member in this team’s achievements.”
