COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs received a one-game suspension from the Big Ten for his part in an altercation before Saturday’s game against Penn State at Beaver Stadium.

The Big Ten also determined that coach Randy Edsall failed to control his team and fined Maryland $10,000 for the violation.

In a statement, Edsall said: “I accept the penalties handed down by the Big Ten Conference and take full responsibility of our actions.”

Diggs and several Maryland players got into a scuffle with the Nittany Lions, and Diggs made contact with a referee who was trying to separate the players.

The league deemed that Diggs, who has a team-high 52 catches for 654 yards, violated the Big Ten sportsmanship policy. His one-game suspension will come Nov. 15 against Michigan State.
