CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has suspended receiver Germone Hopper and safety Ronald Geohaghan for the Boston College game Saturday for what he called poor behavior.

Swinney said Friday the two players violated team rules but did not release any other details

Hopper is a red-shirt freshman from Charlotte, N.C., who is the third-ranked Tigers' second-leading receiver this season with 16 catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. His role has increased the past month because of the season-ending injury to Charone Peake who tore a knee ligament at practice on Sept. 10.

Geohaghan is a freshman from Allendale who has one tackle in three games.

Clemson (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) plays the Eagles (3-2, 1-1) at Death Valley.
