If you're heading up to Camp Randall Saturday to see Wisconsin play Ohio State, something will be missing.


The University of Wisconsin marching band has been suspended and will not play at the nationally-televised game. The university made the announcement at a news conference Friday night. No details are known about the behavior, except it involved inappropriate alcohol use, hazing and sexual misconduct.


University officials say the behavior is consistent with behavior that put the band on probation in 2006.
