SOCORRO, N.M. (AP) - Two Texas-El Paso football players, including a projected defensive starter, will miss the start of the season after violating team rules.

Coach Mike Price on Monday said Travaun Nixon, who is listed as a starting cornerback, will miss the opener. Backup receiver Marlon McClure will miss UTEP’s first two games.

UTEP opens Sept. 4 at home against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Miners on Sept. 10 visit Houston.

Both players violated team rules, but Price did not say exactly what led to the suspensions.
