With the 2022 NFL Draft approaching, there still is plenty of action left for some players to rise up those draft boards. This past weekend there was the Collegiate Bowl and this upcoming week there are three more bowl games. The East/West Shrine Bowl is on Thursday and there are two more on Saturday with the Senior Bowl and the HBCU Legacy Bowl to wrap up the weekend.
Today I wanted to focus on the Reese’s Senior Bowl which will be played on Saturday, February 5th at 1:30 p.m. central time in Mobile, Alabama. The game will be featured on NFL Network and will have Andrew Siciliano, Daniel Jeremiah, Charles Davis, and Tom Pelissero on the call.
While there are other games for NFL hopefuls, the Reese’s Senior Bowl seems to be the most prominent game. What makes this game unique is that the teams are coached by current NFL coaches, but this year will be a little different because, for the first time in the bowl’s history, head coaches will serve in an advisory role.
This year the two staffs will be from the New York Jets and the Detroit Lions. New York Jets assistant Ron Middleton will coach the National Team while Detroit Lions assistant Duce Staley will coach the American Team.
Here are all the Big 12 players who will play in the bowl game on Saturday. From the looks of things, it is pretty clear that the Big 12 is well represented, although a bit unbalanced, considering that Texas is the only Big 12 school with players on the American Team.
