IOWA CITY – University of Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz announced Sunday two players have been suspended from the team after receiving citations from the Iowa City Police Department early Sunday morning. Trey Creamer and Matt Hankins, second year defensive backs, did not travel with the team to Penn State. They each received citations for noise complaints and disorderly conduct related to a house party.

“Their actions demonstrate poor judgement and are not reflective of the high standards of citizenship that we try to uphold,” said Ferentz. “It is difficult but important to hold student-athletes accountable.”

Both players will not participate in any team activities for the next seven days and are not be eligible to travel to Purdue University.

Creamer, a redshirt freshman, is a native of Cartersville, Georgia. Hankins is a sophomore and a native of Lewisville, Texas.
