BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says

No. 1 LSU has suspended star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, along with

defensive back Therold Simon and running back Spencer Ware for this

Saturday's home game against Auburn.

Ware is a former quarterback from Princeton high school in Cincinnati.

The person told The Associated Press about the suspensions on

condition of anonymity on Wednesday because they have not been

announced. LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette declined to confirm any

punishment for the three players, saying only that they're involved

in an internal matter that coach Les Miles "will handle

accordingly."

Mathieu has forced four fumbles, recovering three and returning

two for scores. He also has two interceptions and 42 tackles

including 1½ sacks.

Ware is the leading rusher for the unbeaten Tigers with 512

yards and six touchdowns.

Simon has one interception and 29 tackles.
