LSU Punter Wing Suspended For Bowl Game

When the LSU Tigers take on the Clemson Tigers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl next week, they’ll do so without sophomore punter Brad Wing.  The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported this morning that a source inside the LSU athletic department had confirmed that Wing would not play in the game.

The website TigerRag.com is reporting that Wing’s suspension follows a failed drug test. Wing was fourth in the SEC in punting average this season at 44.8 yards per boot.  He was second in the league last year with a 44.3 average.

Backup punter Jamie Keehn — coincidentally an Australian like Wing — will likely take over for the Tigers in Atlanta.  He punted three times against North Texas this season for an average of 41.0 yards per kick.

 

UPDATE: LSU’s sports information director has confirmed Wing will not play in the bowl game. Here’s the school announcement.
