BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Three players were kicked off the LSU football team on Tuesday.

Freshman defensive back Troy Giddens, freshman offensive lineman Zhamal Thomas and sophomore offensive lineman Kyle Anderson were dismissed for unbecoming conduct, the university said.

"There is a standard that we insist upon with members of our football team when representing this university, our community and the state of Louisiana," coach Les Miles said in a statement. "When that standard isn't met some adjustments must be made."

LSU refused to say what the students had done.
