SAN ANTONIO (KHOU) -- Just one day before the Alamo Bowl, two University of Texas football players are at the center of a sexual assault investigation, San Antonio police confirmed to KENS 5, KHOU's sister station.

Police were called at 2:48 a.m. Friday to the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in the 200 block of North St. Mary.

A woman told police she met two UT players out partying overnight and invited them back to her room at the Holiday Inn. She later made the allegations of sexual assault to police.

Officers said University of Texas football coaches have been notified of the situation. The players have had initial talks with police and were expected to be further questioned by police sexual assault detectives Friday morning.

The names of the players have not been released, since no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

The Longhorns team is staying at the Marriott RiverCenter hotel.

Both teams in the Alamo Bowl game -- the University of Texas Longhorns and the Oregon State Beavers -- were scheduled to have a walk-through practice at the Alamodome on Friday.

Both teams' coaches have a previously scheduled news conference at 11 a.m. Friday.
