IOWA CITY (AP) — A woman raped by two University of Northern Iowa football players eight years ago says she has been devastated by the school's failure to make accommodations for her to stay in school, according to a transcript of court testimony obtained by the Associated Press.

The Davenport woman testified in a Feb. 22 deposition in a civil lawsuit that she continues to suffer panic attacks and nightmares stemming from the 2004 assault in a university dorm room, according to the transcript obtained by the AP under the public records law. She said the university could have limited the damage to her future if administrators would have done more to help her recover emotionally and academically in the aftermath of the attack, the fall semester of her freshman year.
