AUSTIN (January 14, 2013)—University of Texas quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks, who were suspended before the Alamo Bowl as the result of a sexual assault allegation, have rejoined the team, Coach Mack Brown said late Sunday.
McCoy and Hicks were suspended a day before the Dec. 29 Alamo Bowl after a 21-year-old woman told investigators she had been drinking alcohol and was assaulted after inviting two men to her San Antonio hotel room according to a police report.
An attorney for Hicks said the incident was consensual.
Lawyers for the players last week said police told them the case would no longer be pursued.
Police have said the investigation continues.
Texas beat Oregon State 31-27 in the Alamo Bowl.
