Detroit Lions wide receiver Quintez Cephus is suing his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin. 

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday against the university, Cephus alleged that he was used as a "scapegoat" during a sexual assault investigation that resulted in him being temporarily expelled from the school. 

Cephus is seeking unspecified damages as part of the lawsuit, accusing the defendants of violating his due process rights and of violating Title IX provisions.
