Plans set for Texas vs. rest of nation bowl game
EL PASO, Texas -- Buddy Ryan and Mike Price have been named as coaches for a new postseason game that aims to find out if Texas college football players are better than guys from all other 49 states combined.
The Texas vs. the Nation all-star bowl game will pit all-stars from Texas colleges against players from the rest of the country. It will be held Feb. 2 at the Sun Bowl and will be televised live on CSTV.
Teams will consist of seniors ranked in the top 15 at their positions by the NFL.
The Texas squad will feature seniors with high school or collegiate ties to the state. The "nation" roster will be filled with players with no Texas ties.
