Two Syracuse football players are among four university students charged with campus burglaries.

Syracuse police say junior defensive end Markus Pierce-Brewster and junior defensive tackle Davon Walls were charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny in connection with the burglary of an apartment Feb. 23. Both players are accused of stealing a flat screen television, an XBOX gaming system, two iPods and XBox games while students were asleep inside the apartments.

"We are very disappointed and do not in any way condone the alleged behavior that resulted in these charges," rookie Syracuse coach Scott Shafer said in a statement.
