RUSTON, Louisiana Tech - Louisiana Tech senior running Ralph Davis has been suspended for Saturday's game against Boise State for a violation of team rules, the school announced Thursday.

Davis has split time in the Bulldogs' backfield, starting two games and rushing for 192 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Sophomore Ryan Moats will start in Davis' place this weekend.

Louisiana Tech has split its first four games, falling to Fresno State, 16-6, last week in its Western Athletic Conference opener.
