UGA won't play two in bowl game

Georgia's secondary will be without two key pieces in the Jan. 1 TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl, as the school announced on Monday that defensive backs Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson will not participate in the game.

Georgia sports communications director Claude Felton reported that the two sophomores will not face Nebraska in the bowl game due to "violation of team regulations," but had no further information on the players' suspensions.

Harvey-Clemons missed the season-opening loss against Clemson after being involved in a marijuana-related incident during the summer. He started the next 11 games and ranks third on the team with 66 tackles along with 5.5 tackles for a loss, one interception and three fumble recoveries.

Dawson played in all 12 games, starting at cornerback for the first time in the regular-season finale against Georgia Tech, and has 13 tackles and one tackle for a loss.
