2 UT football players accused of sexually assaulting Texas Tech student


Two University of Texas football players were suspended and sent home Friday after a female Texas Tech student reported a sexual assault to San Antonio police.

Coach Mack Brown did not identify the players, but he referred to a KENS-TV report (http://tinyurl.com/cw8dcj3) 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 the 21-year-old Texas Tech student 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.

ESPN says an unnamed UT administration source has identified the players as Texas quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks.

Texas (8-4) plays Oregon State (9-3) in Saturday's bowl game.
