Central Florida linebacker suspended for Saturday's game against South Carolina

UCF linebacker Willie Mitchell will not be on the field this Saturday against the Gamecocks.


The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that linebacker Willie Mitchell will continue to serve a suspension that began last week due to his arrest, and conviction, for driving under the influence of alcohol. The report states that when the arrest was made Mitchell's blood-alcohol content was at 0.15, where the legal level in Florida is at 0.02.

Prior to being suspended, the six-foot, 228-pound junior started the first two games of the season, logging eight tackles, six of which were solo stops.

In his place, six-foot-one, 205 pound true freshmen Chequan Burckett is expected to start.
