Michigan State took a hit late Christmas night when it was announced that senior middle linebacker and team captain Max Bullough would be suspended for the Rose Bowl. Bullough did not make the trip with the team to Pasadena, CA.

Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio released the following statement for Bullough’s suspension:

“Max Bullough has been suspended for the remainder of the season for a violation of team rules. It is extremely disappointing for all parties involved. We will stay focused and close ranks as we prepare for Stanford on January 1 in the Rose Bowl. Max will forever remain a Spartan and valued member in this team’s achievements.

“We will have no further comment on this issue.”

Bullough, who is responsible for calling the plays on defense, ranks third on the team in tackles this season with 76 – 9.5 of which were for a loss.

Senior Kyler Elsworth is listed as Bullough’s backup, but has rarely seen the field this season.

Michigan State will face off against Stanford on Jan. 1 in the Spartans’ first Rose Bowl appearance since 1988.
