CORAL GABLES, Fla. At least eight Miami Hurricane players will be suspended for their role in a sideline-clearing brawl during last night's game against Florida International.

It was the first meeting between the two cross-town teams. Miami won 35-to-nothing.

Coach Larry Coker says he's suspending the five players ejected in the fight _ offensive linemen Derrick Morse and Chris Barney, running back Charlie Jones, and cornerbacks Carlos Armour and Bruce Johnson. He's also suspending safeties Anthony Reddick and Brandon Meriweather and fullback James Bryant.

The lengths of the suspensions haven't been determined.

The fight marred what was supposed to be the beginning of a friendly rivalry between two schools with players who grew up battling each other on high school fields in South Florida.
