It’s a very bad Friday for two Texas Longhorn players, as quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks are the center of a sexual assault investigation.
From KENS Channel 5:
Police were called at 2:48 a.m. Friday to the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in the 200 block of North St. Mary.
A woman told police she met two UT players out partying overnight and invited them back to her room at the Holiday Inn. She later made the allegations of sexual assault to police.
For the record, the Longhorns are in San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl against Oregon State. According to records, the Longhorns are staying at the Marriott RiverCenter Hotel, which is roughly under a mile from the Holiday Inn that is acting as the scene of the crime in the report.
Police also reportedly told KENS 5 that the woman alleging she was raped is a 21-year old student from Texas Tech.
