Minnesota Daily covering football team suspensions, possible bowl boycott

With the college football bowl season set to kick off Saturday, the big story is whether the University of Minnesota will take the field against Washington State in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 in San Diego.

The football team announced Thursday that it would boycott all activities and practices after 10 players were suspended earlier this week over an alleged sexual assault back in September.
