MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin wide receiver Nick Davis was suspended Friday for the Sun Bowl after pleading guilty to stealing a television from an electronics store.

After entering into a plea agreement with prosecutors, Davis was found guilty of misdemeanor retail theft in Dane County Circuit Court and placed on probation for two years. He also must pay a $3,800 fine, according to Dane County District Attorney Brian Brophy.

Davis, 21, was originally charged Monday with felony retail theft after a friend allegedly helped him steal a $4,000 television from Best Buy. That charge carries a possible $10,000 fine and up to 15 years in prison.

Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez said Davis, a junior, will remain on scholarship and will continue to play for the Badgers.

In a statement released Friday evening, Alvarez said he felt it was "appropriate" to suspend Davis for the bowl game against UCLA Dec. 29.
