Minnesota football ends boycott, will play in Holiday Bowl

-

Common sense has prevailed and the Minnesota football team has announced it has ended its ill-advised boycott of the Holiday Bowl. The players initially planned to boycott the game as a sign of support for 10 players who have been suspended as a result of a gang rape investigation.

Players had initially demanded their teammates be reinstated immediately, but that just wasn’t going to happen.

Minnesota, like any university, has a strict code of conduct and reinstating players immersed in a sexual assault scandal would have set a dangerous, and quite frankly, disgusting precedent.

After a meeting with the school’s regents, it looks like the adults finally got through to the players as it was announced on Saturday morning that they will make the trip to San Diego to take on Washington State on Dec. 27.

Minnesota now has ten days to prepare for its bowl game at Qualcomm Stadium.

Kickoff between the Golden Gophers and Cougars is set for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
