PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -- A Washington State University football player has regained consciousness after a Sunday brawl in Pullman involving his teammates and players from the neighboring University of Idaho.

Wide receiver Mansel Simmons was found unconscious early Sunday morning in a parking lot with injuries to his head.

Police told the Moscow-Pullman Daily News that he was transported first to Pullman Regional Hospital and then to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.

Pullman Police Commander Chris Tennant says WSU and Idaho players had been attending the same party at a private home when a disagreement occurred. After the fight, police say WSU students reliated by trashing the vehicle the idaho player arrived in and inscribed the letters W-S-U on the hood. 

Commander Tennant says the Idaho student could face a charge of felony assault.

The incident remains under investigation.
