While the USC Trojans prepare to challenge Georgia Tech on Monday in the Sun Bowl, the next generation of players arrived in San Antonio on Sunday for their own bowl game, the Army All-American bowl.
This prestigious bowl recognizes nearly 100 of the nations’ most elite football players, and USC has 13 of its 15 commits making an appearance in it.
For college football fans, the Army All-American bowl is the last time to get a glimpse of what they can expect from incoming players of their respective teams. In a classic East vs. West matchup, players get to line up alongside some of their future teammates as well as play against them, many of which do so for the first time.
Of the Trojans’ thirteen commits in the Army All-American bowl, QB Max Browne, DL Kenny Bigelow and DB Su’a Cravens headline the bunch. In addition to the commits, USC targets like DL A’Shawn Robinson, DB Tahaan Goodman, and the recently de-committed DL Eddie Vanderdoes will suit up in black and gold and put on a final show for their many suitors before they make their final decisions regarding where they will play college ball on National Signing Day.
Aside from the game itself, Army All-Americans get to participate in a week’s worth of activities that connect them with Army Soldier Heroes from around the country, in attempts to provide the athletes with perspective as to what it means to be Army Strong.
The 13th annual Army All-American bowl takes place at 1 p.m. ET on Jan. 5, at the Alamodome and will be televised live on NBC.
