Minnesota Players Announce A Boycott Of Football Activities

Golden Gopher football players announced tonight a team-wide boycott.

Minnesota's football players announced this evening, while unified wearing their jerseys, that they are boycotting all football activities until the team's suspended players are reinstated.

The Golden Gophers indefinitely suspended 10 players earlier this week due to an alleged sexual assault.

Minnesota's players announced tonight that they're boycotting all football activities and want a meeting with the university's board of regents.

The team addressed the media at the practice facility and a statement was read by senior wide receiver Drew Wolitarsky.

The players didn't say, though, if the boycott would include the bowl game. Minnesota is set to take on Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.

Minnesota and Washington State are scheduled to play on Tuesday, Dec. 27 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. The game is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
