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.
