ATLANTA — Four Georgia Tech players, including starters Stephen Hill and Mario Edwards, will not play in Monday's Independence Bowl against Air Force because of academic problems.
Hill is a sophomore receiver who leads the Yellow Jackets with 15 catches for 291 yards and three touchdowns.
Edwards is a senior safety who ranks third on the team with 68 tackles. Both were declared ineligible Thursday for failing to meet school requirements in the classroom.
The school also announced that senior defensive end Robert Hall and senior linebacker Anthony Barnes are ineligible to play in the bowl under the NCAA's academic guidelines.
