TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Two Tulsa football players pleaded guilty to burglary charges Monday.

Leading tackler Kedrick Alexander and reserve Terrance Thomas have an August 30th sentencing date.

The pair have been suspended indefinitely from the Tulsa football team.

Alexander and Thomas admitted to breaking into a track athlete's dorm room and stealing a credit card, a laptop computer and a Sony Playstation Two in May. They bought gasoline with the credit card.

Prosecutors will recommend two-year sentences, 500-dollar fines and 80 hours of community service under their plea bargain.

Alexander led the Golden Hurricane in tackles as a sophomore last season and was named second team All-Western Athletic Conference.

Thomas redshirted last season and did not play.
