The SportsXchange

Texas Christian University suspended Casey Pachall following the Horned Frogs quarterback's arrest Thursday morning for driving while intoxicated, according to multiple reports.

Citing Forth Worth police, NBC 5 in Fort Worth reported that Pachall, 21, was stopped near TCU's campus for running a stop sign and hitting a curb. He then registering a blood-alcohol level of more than .15 -- nearly twice the legal limit in Texas.

He has since been suspended indefinitely by head coach Gary Patterson.

Pachall has been in trouble before. He shared a house with former TCU linebacker Tanner Brock, who was among four football players arrested during a February campus-wide drug bust. He admitted drug use to police, but wasn't arrested.

A junior, Pachall started all 13 games for the Horned Frogs last season. This season, he passed for 948 passing yards and 10 touchdowns for the 4-0 Horned Frogs. He ranks fifth nationally in pass efficiency.

---Missouri freshman wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and two teammates were arrested for possession of marijuana and were suspended along with two other players for Saturday's home game against Vanderbilt.

A team spokesman told the Columbia Tribune and CBSSports.com that all five players are freshmen and that they won't be with the team Saturday.

Wide receiver Levin Copeland and linebacker Tory Boozer wre identified along with Green-Beckham in reports of the Wednesday night incident as the players who were arrested.

---Duke starting quarterback Sean Renfree is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Virginia because of an elbow injury. Coach David Cutcliffe said Thursday it will be a game-time decision whether Renfree will play.

If Renfree cannot play, Anthony Boon would start for Duke (4-1).
