ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan coach Brady Hoke has suspended cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup and linebacker Brandin Hawthorne for a violation of team rules.

Hoke says in an announcement Sunday that the three players will not travel with the 19th-ranked Wolverines for the Outback Bowl against No. 11 South Carolina because each of them used poor judgment. He didn't specify which team rules were broken.

Floyd is a starting cornerback and Hagerup is the team's top punter. Hawthorne is a backup linebacker.

Hoke says it's an honor to play football for the University of Michigan and there are high standards and expectations for everyone that represents the program.
