CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina says running back Anthony Elzy will not play in the Music City Bowl.

The team said in a statement Monday that Elzy did not travel with the Tar Heels to Nashville, Tenn., after failing to meet his obligations as a student-athlete at the school.

Elzy replaced Johnny White in the starting lineup for the final three games for North Carolina and rushed for a career-high 118 yards in the finale against Duke.

The Tar Heels face Tennessee in the Music City Bowl on Thursday.
