2 Texas Players Suspended After Sexual Assault Report
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Texas suspended two football players Friday and sent them home on the eve of the Alamo Bowl, hours after police said they were investigating a report of a sexual assault at a San Antonio hotel.
Coach Mack Brown did not identify the players, but he referred to a KENS-TV report that police were investigating two Texas players in the alleged assault.
Sgt. Javier Salazar, a police spokesman, said only that detectives are in the early stages of investigating the case. A heavily-redacted police report says a 21-year-old woman told police she had several drinks and believed she was assaulted around 2 a.m. Friday after inviting two men, identified only as students, to her hotel room.
Texas (8-4) plays Oregon State (9-3) in Saturday’s bowl game.
