Two Oregon State football players were stabbed early Sunday outside a Waikiki fast-food restaurant, hours after playing in the Oahu Bowl game.

Charles O'Neal, a 288-pound defensive tackle, was stabbed in the lower back, and Paul Luoma, a 285-pound defensive tackle, was cut on the torso, police said.

O'Neal was hospitalized in stable condition, Oregon State athletic director Mitch Barnhart said.

The knife with a 4-inch blade was still in O'Neal's back when he arrived at the hospital, according to police, who opened an attempted murder investigation.

Luoma was treated and released and left Honolulu with his teammates on Sunday.
