The Reese’s Senior Bowl is under a month away and Oregon football has four players flocking to the game to show off their skills one last time at the collegiate level.

Bo Nix is set to be one of five quarterbacks featured in the game. He will be joined by Notre Dame’s Sam Hartman, South Carolina’s Spencer Rattler, Tennessee’s Joe Milton III, and Tulane’s Michael Pratt.

Throughout the season Nix was recognized as the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and the Pac-12 Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He was also awarded the William V. Campbell Trophy which recognizes the “best football scholar-athlete in the nation for his combined academic success, football performance, and exemplary leadership.”

Nix has the opportunity to share the field with his All-American center Jackson Powers-Johnson who accepted his invitation to the game as well. Better known as JPJ, he won the Rimington Trophy which is awarded to the best center in the country each year.

On the defensive side of the ball, Oregon will be sending defensive lineman Brandon Dorlus and cornerback Khyree Jackson.
