IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says freshman running back Mika’il McCall will remain on suspension for the Dec. 30 Insight Bowl against Oklahoma. Ferentz said Wednesday during a weekly radio show that McCall’s suspension wouldn’t be lifted for the bowl game. McCall was suspended prior to the Nov. 25 against Nebraska for an undetermined violation. The Hawkeyes will also be without leading rusher Marcus Coker against the Sooners. Coker, who rushed for 1,384 yards this season, was suspended Tuesday for a violation of the university’s student code of conduct. None of Iowa’s remaining backs have gained more than 79 yards rushing this season.
