A pair of SEC football players have reportedly been suspended for an incident with the team's cheerleaders.

Arkansas head coach Chad Morris announced this morning that Kamren Curl and Ryan Pulley have been suspended.

The head coach called the two players' actions "completely unacceptable."

Whole Hog Sports reported this weekend that both players had been spotted interacting with the team's spirit squad before the game.

From the report:

The problems for the University of Arkansas football team against Mississippi State started before kickoff Saturday, said D.J. Williams, a former All-America tight end for the Razorbacks.

Williams, who works for Little Rock TV station KARK-Channel 4, said he saw Arkansas defensive backs Ryan Pulley and Kamren Curl taking photos and talking with female members of Mississippi State's spirit squad before the Razorbacks went through warmups.

Arkansas Coach Chad Morris, asked in his postgame news conference about players socializing with cheerleaders, said it was unacceptable.

Arkansas is set to play at Missouri on Friday.
