TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WVLT) -- As many as 20 Florida State football players may be suspended for the Music City Bowl game against Kentucky after being implicated in a cheating scandal involving an online course, ESPN.com is reporting.

The players could also be suspended for the first three games of the 2008 season. Student-athletes from other sports are allegedly also involved in the scandal.

The results of FSU's investigation into the incident will be released this week. The inquiry began in September, when the school announced that as many as 23 student-athletes were given answers before taking tests over the Internet.

Later findings indicated that more student-athletes were involved than was initially assumed.
