NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The prosecution has rested its case in the rape trial of two former Vanderbilt football players.

Earlier Thursday, the alleged victim testified that she has no recollection of being sexually assaulted.

The woman was a 21-year-old student majoring in neuroscience and economics in June 2013 and had recently begun seeing football player Brandon Vandenburg.

She testified that the last thing she remembered was Vandenburg plying her with alcohol at a popular Nashville night spot. She told jurors that she woke up alone the next morning in a strange dorm room feeling confused, not like herself and very sick.

Prosecutors say Vandenburg encouraged three other football players to rape her while she lay unconscious on his dorm room floor.

Vandenburg and Cory Batey are being tried on rape charges. Two other players have been charged. All have pleaded not guilty.
