CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Three Oregon State players arrested following a fight at a Corvallis bar over the weekend have been suspended from the team.

Senior defensive end Rudolf Fifita, junior defensive tackle Mana Rosa and junior linebacker Dyllon Kalena Mafi were arraigned on Monday.

All face two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct. Mafi faces an additional charge for misrepresenting his age.

The players are due back in court on Jan. 10.

Among the players, Fifita saw the most action this season with 25 tackles and 2½ sacks in all 12 games. Rosa also played in 12 games while Mafi played in two.

The No. 15 Beavers (9-3) will play Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29. It is unlikely any of the three will play in the bowl game.
