The Georgia football team announced tonight that starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons and cornerback Sheldon Dawson are suspended for the Jan. 1 Gator Bowl against Nebraska because of a violation of team rules.

It’s the second suspension of the season for Harvey-Clemons, who also missed the season opener against Clemson for violating university drug policy. Harvey-Clemons, a sophomore from Valdosta, started the other 11 games.

Dawson, a sophomore, played in all 12 games and made his first start against Georgia Tech in the regular-season finale. Dawson also returned kickoffs in four games for the Bulldogs this season.
