DULUTH, Minn. — The head football coach at the University of Minnesota Duluth says some players have been suspended after police cited them for underage drinking.

Coach Curt Wiese says some players have also lost scholarships and two have been stripped of their roles as team captains.

WDIO-TV reports Wiese says the weekend underage drinking party was hosted by football players. Names and individual consequences were not released.

Duluth police say officers responded to a house party late Sunday night where about 75 people had gathered. Officer Matt Nevanen says police spent about an hour and a-half handling the situation and writing citations.

UMD's season opener is Saturday at home against Concordia-St. Paul.
