Lincoln, NE (NPPost) - News broke on Wednesday afternoon that players Andre Hunt and Katerian LeGrone were found to have violated the University of Nebraska's sexual misconduct policies and face 2 1/2 years of suspension from the University.
Both players were suspended on Aug. 26th of this year and did not see any playing time because of the incident.
The allegations stem from an August 25th incident in the players off-campus apartment in which an unnamed woman was invited to the apartment and taken advantage of by the players.
The woman filed a report with the Lincoln Police department that night and the investigation into the incident remains open. No charges have been filed at this time.
As of December 4th, the two players have seven university business days in which they can file an appeal and avoid a 2 1/2 year suspension from the university. If no appeal is filed the judgement will stand.
The University decided on the length to allow the woman enough time to finish her education.
