Three Oregon State players arrested following a fight at a Corvallis bar over the weekend have been suspended from the team.
Senior defensive end Rudolf Fifita, junior defensive tackle Mana Rosa and junior linebacker Dyllon Kalena Mafi were arraigned on Monday.
All face two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct. Mafi faces an additional charge for misrepresenting his age.
The players are due back in court on Jan. 10.
Among the players, Fifita saw the most action this season with 25 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks in all 12 games. Rosa also played in 12 games while Mafi played in two.
The No. 15 Beavers (9-3) will play Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29. It is unlikely any of the three will play in the bowl game.

It never fails, a few college football players around the country forgo great bowl gifts and a free trip to an exotic locale like San Antonio to (allegedly) curbstomp some random dude at the bar. Take these three Oregon State footballers.
How did they blow off steam on their first real Saturday off? They allegedly curbstomped a guy.
Corvallis police arrested Rudolph (SIC) Fifita...
MAYBE THE BEAVER players should just not go there again. Ever. Three Oregon State football players were arrested following an incident at the Impulse Bar and Grill on varying charges this weekend, making it six Beavers since May who have had run-ins with the law at the establishment.
OREGON STATE MAY have found their Class of 2013 quarterback. Greg Biggins of Scout.com has a report on one of the few known QB prospects with an Oregon State offer and it looks to be good news for OSU fans. Plus, the Top 50 quarterback will also be in Corvallis today.
