FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) _ Starting center Chase Johnson is among five TCU players who were suspended for the inaugural Fort Worth Bowl against No. 18 Boise State.

Johnson missed curfew at the team hotel Saturday night. Four freshmen players were suspended for violating unspecified team rules that same night, TCU spokesman Steve Fink said Monday.

None of the four freshmen, fullbacks Marcus Draper and Reggie La'Mothe, and cornerbacks Gerrad Wilson and Derek Ferry, had extended playing time this season.

The 19th-ranked Frogs last week suspended defensive tackle Terrence James, who played in all 12 games, for violating unspecified team rules.

On Sunday, six Boise State players were ruled academically ineligible, knocking them out of Tuesday night's game. The only starter was offensive left tackle Tyrone Tutogi.
