MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin reserve running back Booker Stanley was suspended from the team Wednesday after his arrest for allegedly choking a woman at his apartment.

He remained in jail late Wednesday and his availability for the Jan. 2 Capital One Bowl against Auburn in Orlando is up in the air.

Dane County District Attorney Brian Blanchard said he would be considering formal charges.

BAYLOR: Wes Phillips, grandson of former Oilers and Saints coach Bum Phillips, was hired as quarterback coach.

NORTHWESTERN: Defensive tackle Trevor Schultz, cornerback Deante Battle and receiver Kim Thompson, who all started at times this season, were suspended for the Dec. 30 Sun Bowl against No. 17 UCLA for academic reasons and violation of athletic department policy.

S.E. MISSOURI ST.: Former New Mexico State coach Tony Samuel was hired to take over the Redhawks.

UCLA: Quarterback Matt Leinart had his eligibility temporarily revoked after appearing in a promotional segment on ESPN earlier this month, a violation of an NCAA rule. He was reinstated Tuesday after the NCAA ruled his actions were "unintentional and inadvertent."
