Notre Dame Golson Football

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame says it is investigating "suspected academic dishonesty" involving several students, including four members of the football team.

The school released a statement Friday saying it has notified the NCAA and that because of potential NCAA violations the four players are being held out of practice and completion until the conclusion of the investigation and the university honor code process.

The four football players were not identified by the school.

A 6 p.m. ET news conference is scheduled on campus.
