Pitt Football: Jason Pinkston To Play In Senior Bowl

Well, it's that time of year again - time for postseason college football All-Star games.

The Under Armour Senior Bowl is next Saturday, January 29th and Pitt tackle Jason Pinkston is among the Big East representatives slated to play.

Pinkston is the only Pitt representative and compared to the other conference's, the Big East isn't sending that many. Still, the seven that are going are some of the conference's better players.

Of the seven BIG EAST players slated to play in this year's game, six were All-Conference selections.  It's a group that also includes West Virginia running back Noel Devine, who finished his career ranked fourth on the BIG EAST's all-time rushing list with 4,317 yards. 

"This is a very talented group with some outstanding running backs in Devine and Powell," Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale said.  "All seven of these players made major impacts on their respective programs over the course of their careers and we're looking forward to watching them compete here at the Senior Bowl next week."

Louisville and West Virginia are tied with the most BIG EAST participants in this year's game with two each.  Representing the Cardinals will be Powell and defensive back Johnny Patrick.  The Mountaineers are sending Devine and defensive lineman Chris Neild.  Other BIG EAST participants include: UConn linebacker Lawrence Wilson, Rutgers defensive back Joe Lefeged and Pittsburgh offensive lineman Jason Pinkston. 

Pinkston is playing for the North, who will be coached by Pittsburgh native and Bengals coach Marvin Lewis.

The game will be televised on the NFL Network.
