With the Alamo Bowl against Oregon State kicking off tomorrow evening, the last thing Texas needs is an off-the-field distraction. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, that’s exactly what they’re getting.
KENS 5 News in San Antonio reports that two University of Texas football players are at the “center of a sexual assault investigation.” Per the report:
Police were called at 2:48 a.m. Friday to the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in the 200 block of North St. Mary.
A woman told police she met two UT players out partying overnight and invited them back to her room at the Holiday Inn. She later made the allegations of sexual assault to police.
No one has been arrested or charged in relation to the alleged incident and the identities of the players have not been made official. Texas is staying at the Marriott RiverCenter hotel, a little under a mile from the scene of the alleged incident. UT football coaches have been made aware of the situation and are in the fact-gathering stage.
Coach Mack Brown would only say Friday that two players broke rules, have been suspended and sent home. 247Sports, Orangebloods.com and ESPN ares reporting that quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks have been sent home, although that has not been confirmed officially and it should be noted it is also not confirmed that the two events are related.
