Two Texas football players suspended before the Alamo Bowl amid a sexual assault allegation have rejoined the team.
Coach Mack Brown said late Sunday that quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks are back.
McCoy and Hicks were suspended a day before the Dec. 29 Alamo Bowl. A police report says 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. An attorney for Hicks says 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.

For the first three quarters of the 2012 Alamo Bowl, the Texas Longhorns appeared to be nothing more than a sluggish team who played as if they were extremely poorly coached. Texas showed no creativity on offense, very little ability on defense and looked as if they would once again finish the college football season on a down note.
And then, David Ash did the improbable. In a huge...
