Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The redshirt sophomore has been suspended for the Holiday Bowl after an unspecified violation of team rules, according to a report.

The UCLA Bruins have suspended redshirt sophomore safety Tevin McDonald for the team's upcoming Holiday Bowl game against the Baylor Bears, according to Jack Wang of the Los Angeles News Group. The suspension comes as a result of an unspecified violation of team rules.

The 5'11 McDonald played in all 13 games for the Bruins during the 2012 regular season, amassing 74 tackles (54 solo). McDonald had one interception on year, in the team's 36-7 win over the Houston Cougars on Sept. 15.

After assuming the starting free safety role after Tony Dye was lost to injury in 2011, the Fresno native started in 11 games for the Bruins. McDonald was named a Freshman All-American by Yahoo! Sports, and finished ninth in the Pac-12 in passes defensed with 0.86.

Kickoff is slated for 6:45 p.m. PT at Qualcomm Stadium on Thursday, Dec. 24. The game will be televised on ESPN and ESPN 3D.
