KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Tennessee senior fullback Kevin Cooper is being suspended for Saturday’s game at South Carolina.

Coach Derek Dooley said Wednesday that he was suspending the Chattanooga native because he violated a team academic policy.

The 6-foot, 242-pound Cooper has played in all seven games this season and started five of them. He’s caught six passes for 39 yards.

Freshman Channing Fugate will play in Cooper’s place. Fugate has also played in all seven games, but his only offensive statistic came on an 8-yard kickoff return in the Volunteers’ 32-29 overtime win over UAB.
