Seven of the eight were suspended for team curfew rules during the bowl trip, school spokesman Steve Weakland said. One was suspended for a violation of athletic department policy.
None of the eight were starters, and four were injured players not expected to play in the game.
The seven suspended for violating curfew were: tight end Cameron Harris; cornerback A.J. Jefferson; fullback Isaac Kinter; guard Chris Piligian; running back Jamal Rashad; defensive end Jason Roberts; and defensive end Michael Stuart.
Linebacker Frank Padilla was suspended for violation of an undisclosed athletic department policy.
Jefferson was the only player to make a significant contribution during the season, leading the Bulldogs in kickoff returns, including two touchdowns. Hill said earlier Saturday that Jefferson would not play in the game with an ankle injury.
