CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Clemson reserve running back Mike Bellamy has been suspended for the Dr Pepper ACC Championship game against Virginia Tech for a violation of team rules, the school announced less than an hour before kickoff. Bellamy had travelled to Charlotte with the team, but returned to Clemson, S.C., on Saturday.
Bellamy is Clemson’s second-leading rusher with 343 yards on 57 attempts, a 6.0 average. He has three touchdowns, including one on a 31-yard run in the first meeting against Virginia Tech on October 1.
This is obviously a loss for Clemson. Andre Ellington is the main man, but Bellamy has contributed and helped the depth.
