TCU QB Trevone Boykin suspended from Alamo Bowl after arrest

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- TCU football coach Gary Patterson has suspended quarterback Trevone Boykin for Saturday's Alamo Bowl game after he was charged with felony assault of a police officer.

Boykin said that he'd suspended Boykin and receiver Preston Miller from the game for violation of team rules.

Patterson said in a statement, "We are disappointed in their actions and apologize to the TCU Horned Frogs Nation, Valero Alamo Bowl and city of San Antonio."

Boykin was arrested early Thursday morning in San Antonio. Police said he charged at responding officers, and swung at one before being taken to the ground.
