Two Baylor football players under investigation for suspected sexual assault


With Baylor still rebounding from the damage done from a massive sexual assault scandal within the football program, two Baylor football players have been investigated for their possible connection to a new sexual assault incident on Baylor’s campus. No names have been confirmed publicly at this time due to privacy laws.

According to a report from KWTX in Waco, Texas, two redshirt football players were part of a group of four individuals questioned by police in an active investigation. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made at this time. The case has been passed along to Baylor’s Judicial Affairs and Title IX offices, according to the original report.

The alleged victim and the female filing the report are both members of Baylor’s equestrian team. The incident in question occurred on the night of Nov. 11, hours after Baylor lost a football game against Texas Tech in Arlington. As redshirt players, neither player reportedly questioned would have played, but it is unknown if they traveled with the team to the neutral site game. Video of the alleged incident has been turned over to Baylor’s Title IX investigators.

For now, the investigation is ongoing. If more information comes out, we will certainly update the story as needed. But for now, with no charges filed and no arrests made, the unnamed players connected to the investigation are considered fully active members of the Baylor football program until updated otherwise.
