Notre Dame TE Mack suspended for Citrus Bowl

Dec 22, 2017 - 4:28 PM Notre Dame tight end Alize Mack has been suspended for the team's Citrus Bowl game against LSU, the team announced.

Coach Brian Kelly said Mack's suspension is because of an "internal team matter" and unrelated to academics. The junior was academically ineligible for all of the 2016 season.

Mack has reeled in 19 catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in 10 games this season.

With Mack ruled out for the Jan. 1 game as well as freshman Brock Wright (shoulder), the Fighting Irish likely will turn to either Nic Weishar or freshman Cole Kmet at tight end. Weishar had seven receptions for 39 yards and two touchdowns this season while Kmet had two catches for 12 yards.

Notre Dame will also be without sophomore wide receiver Kevin Stepherson and freshman running back C.J. Holmes, who have been suspended indefinitely after an arrest for shoplifting.
