ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan suspended starting cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup and reserve linebacker Brandin Hawthorne for the Outback Bowl in Tampa for a violation of team rules Sunday.
Coach Brady Hoke did not disclose details, saying only each used poor judgment.
Floyd was a second-team All-Big Ten selection. His five passes defensed lead the team, and his 48 tackles are sixth. Hagerup led the Big Ten in punting with an average of 45 yards. Hawthorne appeared in all 12 games, primarily on special teams.
More Outback: South Carolina receiver D.L. Moore and center Kyle Harris won't play for violating team rules, coach Steve Spurrier said late Saturday. Spurrier didn't disclose details. Moore had eight catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns while starting five games. Harris appeared in four games, starting one.

TALLAHASSEE — Florida State has hired Alabama defensive backs coach Jeremy Pruitt to be its defensive coordinator, two recruiting websites, 247sports.com and rivals.com, reported.
Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher declined to confirm the hiring.
"I will announce it when all things are appropriate for all parties," he said.
Pruitt, 38, has been at Alabama since 2007, spending the past three seasons in his current job.
Kansas: Chris Martin, who left Florida in June 2011 after an arrest for possession of marijuana, said he will sign this week. Martin was the consensus No. 2 defensive end in the nation when he signed with Cal in 2010. But he never played for it before transferring to Florida. He spent two seasons at City College of San Francisco. Kansas is coached by former Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.
Tennessee: Zach Azzanni, the receivers coach for Florida in 2010, was hired for the same position. He spent this season as Wisconsin's receivers coach.
Wisconsin: Quarterback Joel Stave, out since breaking his collarbone Oct. 27 against Michigan State, returned to practice. His status for the Rose Bowl hasn't been determined.
