Auburn's star sophomore running back has been suspended and will miss the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve.

Auburn Tigers star running back Michael Dyer has been suspended, according to the Decatur Daily. The reasons for the sophomore's suspension have not been disclosed, but Dyer will miss the Chick-fil-A Bowl on December 31, where the No. 25 Tigers are set to face off against the Virginia Cavaliers.
