Texas running back Vondrell McGee will be suspended for the Longhorns' opener this season after being charged with driving while intoxicated, Statesman.com reported.
McGee, 21, was arrested in Austin at 3:07 a.m. Sunday after an officer saw him driving with his lights off, according to the police report. McGee registered a blood alcohol level of 0.12 on a Breathalyzer, police said. The legal limit in Texas is 0.08.
Texas coach Mack Brown said McGee, who will be a senior, will sit out "at least" the opener with Rice. McGee, whose play was limited by injuries last year, rushed for 300 yards on 56 carries in 2009.
