Florida suspends Harris after sexual assault allegation

Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - University of Florida quarterback Treon Harris has been suspended from all team activities after being accused of sexual assault.

According to the release from the university, Harris is accused of sexually assaulting a female student early Sunday morning in a residence hall on campus.

"We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our campus," UF President Bernie Machen said. "The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment."

The University of Florida Police Department is investigating the incident, and UFPD has brought in the Gainesville Police Department to assist with collection and analysis of forensic evidence.

Harris led Florida to a 10-9 win over Tennessee this past weekend. He entered in the third quarter, replacing starter Jeff Driskel, who had thrown for only 59 yards to go along with three interceptions.

Harris completed 2-of-4 passes for 17 yards. He also ran for 24 yards and guided the Gators on a pair of scoring drives to improve to 3-1 this season.
