LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville running back George Stripling has been suspended for Friday night's game against Utah for violating team rules, coach Steve Kragthorpe said Wednesday.
Stripling, who is second on the team with 171 yards and one touchdown, is the second Louisville player suspended this week. Wide receiver JaJuan Spillman was suspended indefinitely on Monday. Kragthorpe did not say why Spillman was suspended and did not elaborate on why Stripling was disciplined.
Stripling serves mainly as a backup to starter Anthony Allen and fullback Brock Bolen.
