Cincinnati running back Akise Teague was dismissed from the team Thursday after he was arrested and charged with one count of burglary.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Teague allegedly went into unlocked dorm rooms while students slept and stole several items in January. When university police confronted him, he admitted to the crimes and wrote a confession.
"Student-athletes in the program are held to a higher standard of conduct on and off the field as representatives of the university," coach Butch Jones said in a statement. "This incident in no way reflects the values, principles and ideals of our football program."
Teague played in two games as a true freshman last season, with eight carries for 42 yards.
