Big Ten sees punch, suspends UM player

PARK RIDGE, Ill. - Michigan linebacker Jonas Mouton was suspended by the Big Ten Conference for one game for punching a Notre Dame player during last week's game.

Video of the incident during Saturday's 38-34 Wolverines victory spread on the Internet. Mouton appears to punch lineman Eric Olsen under the chin as they get up from the turf following a play in the second quarter.

Friday, Big Ten commissioner James Delaney called the punch "unacceptable."

Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Wednesday he never saw the punch and planned no discipline against Mouton. The Big Ten said yesterday the school accepted the suspension.

AKRON - Akron has suspended starting quarterback Chris Jacquemain for an indefinite period for violating a team policy.

The school did not give any reason for the suspension and said in a statement that there is no timetable for his return.

Jacquemain started the Zips' first two games, completing 13-of-22 passes with four touchdowns and one interception.

Akron plays host to Indiana today.
