Kansas coach Les Miles defended the one-game suspension for running back Pooka WilliamsMonday at the Big 12 Conference media days at AT&T Stadium.
Williams will be suspended for Kansas’ first game against Indiana State after being arrested for assaulting his girlfriend and fellow Kansas student, in December.
The university administration handed down the one-game suspension. Miles suspended Williams, who was the second-leading rusher in the Big 12 for more than seven months. That was lifted last week.
