Earlier this week TCU Defensive End Devonte Fields was separated from the team after an incident where he reportedly punched his girlfriend in the face.

Today, two more Big 12 players were arrested in Austin. Texas Longhorns Wide Receivers' Kendall Sanders and Montrell Meandor have both been suspended indefinitely from the team after being arrested and charged with felony sexual assault. This morning, Head Coach Charlie Strong released a statement saying, "It's been made clear to everyone on our team that treating women with respect is one of our core values, and I'm extremely disappointed that two young men in our program have been accused of not doing that."
