        === Three Pitt football players charged with simple assault ===
 Pittsburgh,  PA (Sports Network) - Three Pittsburgh football players have been
 charged  with simple  assault and  conspiracy, according  to a  report in  the
 Pittsburgh Tribune.
 Karl  Olshenski  told police he  and two friends  were walking down the street
 around  12:30 a.m.  on Oct. 21 when running back Raymond Graham, wide receiver
 Devin  Street and defensive back Lafayette Pitts surrounded them before Street
 struck him in the left side of the head.
 All  three players have  been charged by a summons through the mail after they
 were  identified in a photo array and are scheduled to appear in court on Jan.
 Graham  is the Panthers' leading rusher with 622 yards and seven touchdowns on
 134  carries,  while Street is the  team's leading receiver with 695 yards and
 four scores on 50 receptions. Pitts is Pittsburgh's primary kick returner.
 "We  take  matters of  player discipline  very seriously  and will continue to
 cooperate  with any  investigation," the school said in a statement. "However,
 we  will not, and  hope others will not, rush to judgment on these misdemeanor
 allegations. All three players will remain active members of our program while
 we gain more clarity on this situation."
 The 4-4 Panthers will face off against 8-0 Notre Dame on Saturday.
