ORONO, Maine (AP) _ Four University of Maine football players including projected starting quarterback Daniel Collins are facing alcohol violations - and anticipated discipline by the university.

Acadia National Park rangers charged three players with underage drinking at Sand Beach over the weekend. A fourth, who's 21, was cited for drinking in area where alcohol is prohibited.

Coach Jack Cosgrove said the players face discipline for violating the student-athlete code of conduct.

Cited on Saturday were redshirt sophomore quarterback Daniel Collins, along with redshirt freshman linebacker Benjamin Davis and sophomore tight end Sean Reuss, all 20, along with senior defensive lineman Matthew Wilson, who's 21.
