Yankee Stadium hosts the Pinstripe Bowl annually, but two Syracuse players will not be taking the field in the unique settings.
Coach Doug Marone announced on Tuesday the suspensions of both sophomore running back Adonis Ameen-Moore and junior tight end Max Beaulieu for the bowl game to be played against West Virginia on Saturday.
Marone stated, according to ESPN, that both players committed rules violations, but he would not specify what those were.
On the year, Ameen-Moore played in six games for the Orange, taking 30 carries for 108 yards and a solid five scores. The 5-foot-10, 244-pound native of Colorado had posted the best game of his career against Temple in the season finale for the Big East co-champion Orange. Ameen-Moore ran for 57 yards on 10 carries and scored twice.
Beaulieu played in one game in 2012, against UConn, but he did not accumulate any statistics.
Rest assured, no matter their roles on the team, both would have loved to have taken a shot at former Big East rival West Virginia.
Instead, both will be watching Yankee Stadium from their TVs.
