Three Husker senior defenders headed to Shrine Bowl

Three Husker senior defenders headed to Shrine Bowl

Nebraska vs. Purdue, 11.02.2019

Nebraska defensive lineman Khalil Davis (94) sacks Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer (13) in the second half Nov. 2 at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Three outgoing Nebraska seniors are going to play in one of the more prestigious all-star games this winter. 

Cornerback Lamar Jackson and defensive linemen Carlos and Khalil Davis have accepted invitations to the East-West Shrine Bowl, an all-star game/scouting opportunity for college seniors that is heavily attended by NFL scouting personnel. 

The three were among NU's best defensive players of the season. Jackson, who's 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, turned in his best collegiate season, finishing with a career-best three interceptions and playing with increased confidence and physicality. 

Khalil Davis finished with a team-high eight sacks, most by a Husker defender since 2015, and Carlos was second with four. 

Jackson and Khalil Davis have a chance to earn some down-ballot, All-Big Ten recognition as those honors go out in the coming weeks. 

The East-West Shrine Bowl is Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
