CU Buffs suspend 5 players for violating team rules

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado coach Jon Embree has suspended five defensive players indefinitely for violating unspecified team rules.
The suspended players include defensive backs Josh Moten,

The Buffaloes (1-4) play at seventh-ranked Stanford on Saturday.
