The Texas Longhorns have suspended quarterback case McCoy for their upcoming bowl game against the Oregon State Beavers. Texas has also suspended linebacker Jordan Hicks for Saturday night’s game at the Alamodome, as both players reportedly broke team rules by violating curfew.
This is not the only issue that the Longhorns are dealing with off the field right now, as police are investigating two unidentified Texas football players for an alleged sexual assault that took place at a hotel in the city. No names or further information has been released.
Texas head coach Mack Brown spoke out about the allegations, but did not give any additional information.
“This has been reported: We had a couple young men that broke team rules last night. They have been suspended from the team and they will be sent home,” Brown said. “They will not be available for the game and I will not address any more questions in that matter.”
As of now, we do not know if the incidents are related. The two players who will remain unidentified could be two separate players from the ones who will be suspended for breaking curfew. More details will emerge as the police figure out more answers. As of now, all we know is that McCoy will not be the Longhorns’ starting quarterback against the Beavers on Saturday night.
