Lock, Hall headline Senior Bowl

There are still more college football all-star games to be played. Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, alongside wide receiver Emanuel Hall, will represent MU in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Jan. 26 in Mobile, Alabama.

During the game that in the past has featured the likes of Walter Payton, Brett Favre, Dan Marino, Bo Jackson and many more, Lock and Hall will have many eyes on them — including the sets of eyes from 32 NFL teams that could determine the pair’s football future.

You can watch the two Tigers play for Team North at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 26 on NFL Network.
