BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- LSU has dismissed Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu from its football program for violating school and team rules. Wisconsin senior runningback Montee Ball is now the only returning Heisman Finalist from 2011.
The junior defensive back nicknamed Honey Badger was a surprising Heisman Trophy candidate last season as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game. LSU lost the championship 21-0 to Alabama.
At a news conference Friday, coach Les Miles would not specify the reason Mathieu was kicked off the team.
