Memphis announces suspensions related to bowl postgame brawl
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis has suspended linebacker Leonard Pegues for 1 1/2 games and defensive end Isadore Outing for one game for their roles in a brawl at the end of last season's Miami Beach Bowl victory.
Fuente said Memphis players also performed 326 hours of community service, above the 220 hours the school had required of them as part of their punishments.
Memphis had just clinched its 55-48 double-overtime Miami Beach Bowl triumph over BYU on Dec. 22 when a fight broke out between the two teams.
The Tigers open the season Saturday by hosting Missouri State.
