FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Three Colorado State University football players have been expelled from the school following an off-campus brawl last month.

Colton Paulhus, Michael Orakpo and Nordly Capi had been charged with disorderly conduct in connection with the fight on April 6.

CSU said Friday that a fourth student, Donald Gocha, also was expelled. Gocha also faces a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

Capi and Paulhus were junior defensive ends for the CSU Rams. Orakpo was a junior linebacker. The team had suspended the players pending an investigation.

CSU's Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services made the decision to expel the students. They have the right to appeal the expulsions by May 15.
