San Diego State University said Monday it opened an investigation nine months after a woman claimed she was raped by five football players.

The woman, now 18, publicly shared details of the incident, which took place in October 2021 when she was a minor. In her report, the young woman said she was assaulted in a bedroom during an off-campus party on October 16.

“I know it wasn’t my fault. I know it wasn’t consensual being a 17-year-old girl who’s nearly unconscious in a room with several guys 90% of the time, bloody and bouncing in and out of consciousness,” she told CBS 8.
