AUSTIN, Texas -

An attorney for Texas linebacker Jordan Hicks says police will not file charges against his client after investigating a sexual assault allegation on the eve of the Alamo Bowl.
    
Austin attorney Perry Minton said Wednesday in a statement that San Antonio police informed him that no charges will be brought against Hicks "or anyone else in this matter." Hicks and backup quarterback Case McCoy were suspended Dec. 28 in a move that followed a police investigation involving two unidentified students at a downtown hotel.
    
San Antonio police spokesman Matthew Porter said detectives were still reviewing the case and did not comment further.
    
Minton has previously said the conduct under investigation was consensual.
