FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -California receivers DeSean Jackson and Robert Jordan and leading tackler Thomas DeCoud were held out of the starting lineup in the Armed Forces Bowl on Monday against Air Force.
Coach Jeff Tedford said the three didn't start ``due to violations of team rules.'' He didn't elaborate, but all the players were expected to get into the game.
Jackson, one of the top receivers and punt returners in the nation, had 60 catches for 681 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season. Jordan, a senior, had 41 catches for 541 yards and two TDs. Sam DeSa and Lavelle Hawkins started in place of Jackson and Jordan.
Brett Johnson, a sophomore, made his first career start in place of DeCoud, a senior with 106 tackles.
