All-Star game today

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — College football seniors are once again using the site of the old Blue-Gray game to try to impress pro teams.

The first Raycom College Football All-Star Classic is being held Saturday in the Montgomery stadium that hosted the now-defunct game that was a Christmas Day tradition until a decade ago.

The quarterbacks include Purdue’s Robert Marve for the Stripes team and Pittsburgh’s Tino Sunseri for the Stars. Tulsa center Trent Dupy of Enid will be playing for the Stars along with Air Force linebacker Alex Means and Northestern Oklahoma State offensive lineman Michael Bowie, formerly of Oklahoma State.

Two OSU players — offensive lineman Jonathan Rush and defensive lineman Nigel Nicholson will join Oklahoma defensive lineman Jamarkus McFarland on the Stripes team.
