MADISON, Wis. (AP) -Wisconsin running back Lance Smith, who is facing battery charges, will not be allowed to play in away games this season.
Smith will miss Saturday's game at UNLV and games at Illinois, Penn State, Ohio State and Minnesota.
Smith was suspended from the team in July after he was arrested, but athletics director Barry Alvarez reinstated him in early August just before the Badgers' first practice of the season.
The team announced Wednesday that Alvarez and dean of students Lori Berquam had decided Smith would not play in away games.
Smith is charged with pushing down his girlfriend during a dispute over a cab fare, refusing to let her leave his apartment and taking her money and shoes.
He has apologized to the woman but pleaded not guilty to charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
