Big Ten suspends Spartans' DE Gholston for one game

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Big Ten announced Thursday a one-game suspension for Michigan State defensive end William Gholston for unsportsmanlike conduct in Saturday's 28-14 win over Michigan.

Gholston was flagged for two personal foul penalties during the third quarter Saturday. The first was for grabbing and twisting the facemask of Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson after a play had ended and the second was for a punch to the face of offensive lineman Taylor Lewan.

Gholston, a sophomore starter from Detroit, will miss Saturday's much-anticipated showdown in East Lansing between the No. 16 Spartans (5-1, 2-0) and sixth-ranked Wisconsin (6-0, 2-0).


Three suspended players for top-ranked LSU tested positive earlier this month for synthetic marijuana, reported Thursday, citing two sources familiar with the situation.

LSU on Wednesday suspended cornerbacks Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon as well as running back Spencer Ware for Saturday's game against Auburn after the trio failed school-administered drug tests.

The three players reportedly could be forced to sit out multiple games.
