University of Minnesota players reportedly boycotting activities

The entire University of Minnesota football team is boycotting all football activities until they get answers about the suspension of 10 players this week, according to The Associated Press and other reports.

The university suspended the players after an internal investigation into a sexual assault case, but have not disclosed why. Police have yet to charge any of the players.

The incident allegedly happened in September at an off-campus apartment, which led to Ray Buford Jr., KiAnte Hardin, Dior Johnson and Tamarion Johnson being suspended for three games.

Now they are benched again along with Antonio Shenault, Antoine Winfield Jr., Carlton Djam, Kobe McCrary, Seth Green and Mark Williams.

The boycotting players said they haven't ruled out skipping the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 against Washington State.

UPDATE: Minnesota ended its boycott on Saturday and will begin preparations for the Holiday Bowl.
