JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Michigan backup quarterback Tate Forcier is ineligible for the Gator Bowl against No. 21 Mississippi State.
The school says Forcier, a sophomore who threw for 597 yards and four touchdowns as Denard Robinson's backup this season, "did not meet university standards." He will not play in Saturday's game.
It's unclear whether his ineligibility stems from academic issues.
Forcier played in eight games this season, completing 64 percent of his passes. He also ran 22 times for 51 yards and a touchdown.
