Per GoBearcats

University of Cincinnati offensive tackle Korey Cunningham will play in the play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday, Jan. 20 in Pasadena, California.

Cunningham will play on the American team, wearing his usual No. 71. The game airs live on FS1 Saturday at 1 p.m. from the Rose Bowl.

A Second-Team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2017, Cunningham was one of UC’s senior tri-captains. He closed his career out starting 24-straight games at left tackle and racked up 33 career appearances. He anchored an offensive line that gave up nine less sacks than it did a year ago, ranking in the top half of the league. Cunningham arrived at UC in 2013 as a 220 pound tight end and through hard work and dedication, worked his way into a 315 pound offensive lineman.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in health education in April 2017 and took home UC’s Jim Kelly Spirit Award at the team’s postseason senior awards banquet.

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl is the premier postseason all-star game for any draft-eligible college football players. More than just a game, this week-long experience provides players with the chance to showcase their game to NFL scouts and coaches, while learning from the best in the business. The Collegiate Bowl not only prepares players for the speed and intensity of professional football, but also for the business and lifestyle changes that come with it.

Managing Editor of Bearcat Insider, I've been on the BCI team the last couple of years. I made the final four in the Biggest Big East Fan contest in 2011, I covered UC also on Cincy on the Prowl. I'm just a lefty trying to get buckets in this game called life Van Exel style.
