Childs, McGowen, Chandler suspended for bowl after violating team rules

BOISE, Idaho -- Top Boise State Broncos receiver Jeremy Childs and
two other backup players will miss the Hawaii Bowl game for
violating team rules, coach Chris Petersen says.

Besides Childs, who set a school record for receptions this
season, cornerback Keith McGowen and linebacker Ben Chandler will
miss Sunday's postseason matchup against East Carolina in Honolulu.

Petersen did not provide details of the violations and none of
the players made the trip to Hawaii, the Idaho Statesman reported.

Childs, a sophomore, was voted to the first-team all-Western
Athletic Conference after finishing the season with 82 catches for
1,045 yards and nine touchdowns.

Without him, the Broncos (10-2) will rely on receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis, who combined for 74 catches and 11 TDs
this year.
