Michigan State’s Bullough Receives Rose Bowl Ban Versus Stanford

Michigan State University suspended senior linebacker Max Bullough for violating team rules, a move that will keep one of the school’s captains out of the Rose Bowl against Stanford, coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement.

“It is extremely disappointing for all parties involved,” Dantonio said in the statement. “We will stay focused and close ranks as we prepare for Stanford on January 1 in the Rose Bowl.”

Bullough was a third-team All-American this season and is a two-time team captain. He’s been the Lansing, Michigan, school’s starting middle linebacker for three years.

The school declined to comment on the details of the violation.
