Hannah Simmons | Reporter

The University of Florida just announced it has suspended seven football players for the season opener against Michigan.

The players who have been suspended are receiver Antonio Callaway, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort, defensive linemen Richerd Desir-Jones and Jordan Smith and linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller, according to 247sports.com.

There has been no confirmation on why the players have been suspended, but according to GatorBait.net the players misused funds provided to them by the school. The players even used funds from their scholarship to purchase electronics and afterwards reported that the card was stolen, while other players re-sold the electronics, according to 247sports.com.

Callaway has already been under fire after he had a misdemeanor citation for marijuana in the spring and has had an investigation in 2015 for an alleged sexual assault. Callaway is the top receiver at Florida after catching 54 passes for 721 yards, and had three touchdowns in the 2016 season.

Now that Florida has lost a major portion of its team, you can no longer bet on the game. According to Bovada, the betting on the team has been locked now that Michigan is the overwhelming favorite to win.
