Two Nebraska football players accused of using stolen credit card info to buy pizza

There’s another off-field situation involving Nebraska football players, although this one isn’t nearly as serious as the first.

According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Caleb Tannor and Chad Alioth are accused of using stolen credit card information to pay for pizza they had delivered to campus at some point last month. The Journal Star writes that “the theft was reported to the department Jan. 23 after the cardholder discovered their credit card had been used to pay for pizza delivery.”

Both players have been cited for misdemeanor theft. The newspaper added that "[c]harges had not been filed in the case Wednesday, and the two were set to appear in court next month.”

Thus far, the football program has not addressed the situation publicly.

Tannor was a four-star member of the Cornhuskers’ 2018 recruiting class, rated as the No. 19 weakside defensive end in the country. Just two defensive signees in NU’s class that year were rated higher than Tannor.

As a true freshman last season, Tannor appeared in all 12 games as an outside linebacker and was credited with 10 tackles.

A wide receiver, Alioth took a redshirt as a true freshman in 2017 and didn’t see the field at all in 2018.
