(KSL News) -- Two BYU football players have been suspended and two others disciplined, for honor code violations in connection with an alleged rape.

Return Specialist B.J. Mathis and Linebacker William Turner were suspended today for one year.

Defensive Backs Karland Bennett and Ibrahim Rashada were disciplined.

Four other players are currently undergoing an honor code review.

The rape charges came from a 17-year-old girl, who said the players got her drunk this summer, and sexually- assaulted her. No criminal charges have been filed.

You can read more about the case in tomorrow's Deseret Morning News.
