SAN ANTONIO -- Two University of Texas football players have been suspended in the wake of a sexual assault investigation by San Antonio police. The team is in San Antonio for Saturday's Alamo Bowl.
Multiple sources including KVUE content partners Austin-American Statesman have reported that sources close to the school say the two Longhorn players suspended are backup quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks.
Authorities were called to the Holiday Inn on the Riverwalk around 2:45 a.m. Friday, according to our sister station, KENS.
A 21-year-old woman told police she invited two UT players, one of whom is an acquaintance, up to her hotel room after partying and drinking at a night club and then the Holiday Inn bar.
The woman told police she was sexually assaulted, but both men reportedly told police it was consensual.
No charges have been filed, however at a press conference Friday morning, Coach Mack Brown said two players were sent home and suspended following an after hours incident.
As has been reported, we had a couple of young men that broke team rules last night, Brown said. They have been suspended from the team and they will be sent home and will not be available for the game.
ESPN quotes unnamed sources as saying the players involved are quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks.
Both teams in the Alamo Bowl, the Longhorns and the Oregon State Beavers, were scheduled to have a walk-through practice at the Alamodome on Friday.
