Alabama will be without reserve linebacker Xzavier Dickson in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma.

The school announced Thursday night that Dickson and freshman running back Alvin Kamara have been suspended for the Tide's bowl game.

Kamara has yet to make an appearance for Alabama, but Dickson has seen his role increase throughout the year. The junior outside linebacker was listed as a co-starter at the jack position for the Iron Bowl, sharing the duties with sophomore Denzel Devall. Dickson has recorded 13 tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack while appearing in all 12 regular season games.
