Harvard Football Player Suspended for October 20 Game at Princeton

PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League announced today that it has suspended Harvard football sophomore defensive back Colton Lynch for the Crimson's Oct. 20 game at Princeton for a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a personal foul during the Oct. 13 Bucknell-Harvard game. 

Rule 9, Section 6, Article 2 of the 2011 & 2012 NCAA Football Rules and Interpretations Manual states when a foul is called for initiating contact/targeting a player "that does not result in a player disqualification, there shall automatically be a video review by the conference for possible additional sanctions before the next scheduled game."

Lynch is eligible to return to game action for Harvard's Oct. 27 game at Dartmouth.
