BOSTON (AP) -- Senior Mike Sanders will replace Tim Frager, the team's leading rusher, when Boston College (4-3) plays host to Syracuse (4-2-2) today.
Frager's college career ended Monday night when the National Collegiate Athletic Association banned him for one year for testing positive for a substance on its list of banned drugs, and coach Jack Bicknell said yesterday that Frager's appeal was rejected. The fact it was a prescription drug didn't matter.
Bicknell declined yesterday to identify the drug that showed up in last week's random test, but repeated Wednesday's school statement that it wasn't steroids, cocaine or marijuana. He said Frager didn't know the substance was banned.
