Auburn freshman quarterback Tyrik Rollison, expected to compete for the starting quarterback job next season, has been suspended from the team for a violation of undisclosed team rules.
In announcing the suspension, Auburn coach Gene Chizik didn't specify if Rollison would be making the trip with the rest of the team to the Outback Bowl.
"We have high standards that we have set and fully expect our team to meet," Chizik said in a university release. "When these expectations are not met, I will make decisions based upon what is best for the entire football team and the Auburn Family."
Rollison was redshirting this season. This coming spring practice will be critical for him if he's going to take over as the Tigers' starter next season.
