San Antonio police are investigating accusations of sexual assault against two University of Texas football players. The alleged victim is said to be a 21-year-old Texas Tech student who was staying at the Riverwalk Holiday Inn with two other students. According to reports, she told police that she met the two football players last night at a club and invited them to her hotel room after several drinks.
The identities of the two accused players have not been released because no charges have been filed, but San Antonio CBS-affiliate KENS 5 reports that one of them is said to be a starter for the Longhorns. In a press conference this morning, UT Head Coach Mack Brown said both accused players have been suspended “for breaking team rules” and sent home, but declined to identify the players or say whether either was a starter. News Radio 1200 WOAI tweeted the following descriptions of the implicated players:
