AUSTIN, Texas -- An attorney representing one of the two Texas football players suspended before the Alamo Bowl says a sexual assault allegation against his client is "completely false."

Perry Minton says in a written statement that linebacker Jordan Hicks "vehemently asserts" the conduct under investigation by San Antonio police was "consensual by everyone involved."

Texas coach Mack Brown suspended two unidentified players last Friday. The suspensions followed a San Antonio television station's report that police were investigating two UT players -- also unnamed -- for alleged sexual assault.

A person with knowledge of the suspensions told the Associated Press that Hicks and quarterback Case McCoy were the players.

A police report says a 21-year-old woman accused two unnamed students of assaulting her early Friday morning at a downtown hotel.
