LOS ANGELES (AP) Southern California kicker Matt Boermeester has been suspended from the football team while the university investigates an undisclosed conduct issue.
The school confirmed the Rose Bowl-winning kicker's suspension Wednesday, providing no more details.
Boermeester made the winning 46-yard field goal last month at the final gun in the Trojans' wild 52-49 victory over Penn State in the 103rd Rose Bowl. The kick capped the junior's first season as USC's starting kicker.
Boermeester is a San Diego native who played at Saddleback Junior College before transferring to USC in 2014.
In a statement, USC's athletic department says Boermeester is being investigated by the university for a potential violation of the school's code of conduct. The school provided no further details, noting that disciplinary proceedings and records are confidential.
