NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - With two of former Vanderbilt football players facing decades in prison after being convicted of raping an unconscious student in a dorm room, attention now turns to two of their teammates who have yet to go to trial.

It took a jury three hours Tuesday to reach a verdict convicting Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey of multiple charges of aggravated rape and sexual battery. The jury saw powerful video evidence and photographs of the 21-year-old student being sexually assaulted on a dorm room floor.

Prosecutors say Brandon Banks and Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie also were in that dorm room in the early morning hours of Jan. 23, 2013. A prosecutor says he will make a decision soon about their trial. McKenzie testified at the trial that he didn't touch the woman, but did take photos.
