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.
