Two Nebraska football players have reportedly been accused of using a stolen credit card. The two players allegedly used stolen credit card information to order a pizza.

The two players, sophomore linebacker Caleb Tannor and sophomore wide receiver Chad Alioth, have reportedly been cited with misdemeanor theft.

The Lincoln Journal Star first reported the news of the incident.

The two players are reportedly set to appear in court next month.

From the report:

Caleb Tannor and Chad Alioth have each been cited with misdemeanor theft.

Assistant University Police Chief Hassan Ramzah said the theft was reported to the department Jan. 23 after the cardholder discovered their credit card had been used to pay for pizza delivery.

Charges had not been filed in the case Wednesday, and the two were set to appear in court next month.

It hasn't been a great week for the Huskers' football program in this department.

Nebraska is entering the second year of the Scott Frost era in Lincoln, Neb. The Huskers are expected to make a major jump in Year 2.
