Gophers freshman receiver Andre McDonald will not play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on Friday because of a violation of team policy.

Coach Jerry Kill made the announcement Monday in a news release.

McDonald has 10 catches for 121 yards this season.

The Gophers' opponent, Texas Tech, will be missing three players on Friday.

The Red Raiders say the players violated undisclosed team rules.

Suspended are starting defensive back Cornelius Douglas, special teams player Chris Payne and reserve defensive lineman Leon Mackey.

Chris Thomsen is the Red Raiders' interim head coach after Tommy Tuberville left to go to Cincinnati three weeks ago. Thomsen will lead the Raiders on Friday even though Kliff Kingsbury has been hired as Tuberville's successor for next season.
