SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Brigham Young University is suspending two more football players in connection with an alleged rape.
One of the players was suspended for one year. The other was partially suspended and will remain a student, the school reported yesterday.
The suspensions stem from an August incident where a 17-year-old girl reported she met several BYU football players. She says she and a friend drank with the men after being invited to their apartment.
The girl says she went to lie down and awoke to find several men raping her.
A total of nine players have been investigated by the school in connection with the alleged rape.
Three were cleared and six have been punished -- three of them suspended, one partially suspended, one placed on probation and another given a warning.
A criminal investigation into the incident continues, but so far no charges have been filed.
