University of New Mexico running back Crusoe Gongbay has been arrested on suspicion of rape in Albuquerque ... officials say. 

20-year-old Gongbay -- who's battling for the starting RB job next season -- is accused of sexually assaulting a UNM student on April 13th. 

Officials say the woman contacted authorities around 3AM on April 13th claiming she had been raped. She claims 2 other men may have also been involved. 

Investigators say the accuser underwent evaluation from the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Unit -- and the evidence was sent to the state crime lab for processing.

The investigation is ongoing -- and the results from the crime lab are not back yet. 

UNM head coach Bob Davie issued a statement saying Gongbay has been suspended from the UNM football team "due to the obvious serious nature of these charges." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
