ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) The Big Ten has suspended Northwestern defensive lineman C.J. Robbins for one game for punching a player during last weekend's loss to Northern Illinois.

The conference also issued a public reprimand of Robbins for violating the conference's Sportsmanship Policy. It announced the punishment in a news release on Tuesday.

Robbins, a junior, was ejected in the fourth quarter of the Wildcats' 23-15 loss last Saturday to NIU.

Northwestern's next game is against Western Illinois on Sept. 20.
