Smith will miss games at UNLV, Illinois, Penn State, Ohio State and Minnesota as resolution of a non-academic misconduct case pending against him for a July incident.
Smith was suspended from the team on July 18 for violating the UW Department of Athletics Student Athlete Discipline Policy. He was re-instated on August 6, and in mid-August was given notice that additional disciplinary action was possible under the policy. With the Dean of Students Office having reached a resolution with Smith, no additional game suspensions will be imposed.
Smith played in 12 of Wisconsin's 13 games last season and was the team's second-leading rusher with 345 yards and five touchdowns as a true freshman.
Smith will continue to compete in home games, participate in other team activities, receive traditional student-athlete support services and complete all court, athletic and university-mandated restitution.
