Mizzou’s Charles Harris and Iowa’s CJ Beathard will both be participating in the All-Star Football Challenge in Dallas, Texas at AT&T Stadium. For the first time, the skills competition will feature 24 of college football’s stars divided into six teams based on their college conference.
Each team will consist of four players from the same conference that will compete for conference supremacy in a series of skills competitions. The conferences represented are the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC, and four of the best players outside of the Power Five that will be called the “Wild Card” team. Each team will also be designated a current NFL player that was a prolific college star in that team’s conference to serve as a coach and mentor throughout the competition.
The annual program is scheduled to air Friday, Feb. 3, at 9 p.m. ET, on ESPN2. The event will have encore airings on ESPN at 1 p.m. ET, on April 8 and on ESPN2 at noon ET, on April 23. For more information on the 2017 State Farm All-Star Football Challenge, like their Facebook page
