The University of Minnesota football team will play in the Holiday Bowl, reversing a threat to boycott the game because of the suspension of 10 players accused of participating in a sexual assault.

The players announced Saturday they will play Washington State on Dec. 27 in the game in San Diego.

No criminal charges were filed against the players, but a school investigation concluded this week the athletes violated university policy. On Thursday, players said they wouldn't practice or play unless their teammates' suspensions were revoked.

A group of seniors from the team met with the board of regents, university President Eric Kaler and athletic director Mark Coyle on Friday night.

The school declined the players' request to reinstate the suspended players.
