The Pac-12 Conference has officially suspended Oregon State Beavers running back Jovan Stevenson for the first half of the Beavers’ next game for a late hit on a defenseless Hawaii player on Saturday, September 7, as was announced by Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.

The Pac-12 performs weekly reviews of all unsportsmanlike conduct and player safety fouls. Stevenson’s penalty occurred with just 26 seconds remaining in the first half when he drew a a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness penalty.

Stevenson will be ineligible to return until the third quarter against Utah this Saturday in a game that should be highly contested. His absence could be a big loss.
