DaQuan Jones Accepts Invitation to Play in Senior Bowl

DaQuan Jones, an All-Big Ten selection for his play this season on the defensive line, has accepted an invitation to play at the 65th annual Senior Bowl, according to GoPSUSports.

The game will take place on Saturday, January 25 beginning at 4:00 p.m. at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, and can be watched on the NFL Network.

Jones will become the 20th Nittany Lion in the last decade to play in the Senior Bowl. Last season, only one Penn Stater played in the game — defensive lineman Jordan Hill. Penn State has a rich history of defensive linemen to play in the game, as Hill, Jack Crawford, Anthony Adams, Michael Haynes, Tamba Hali, and Jared Odrick have all played in the Senior Bowl in the past 11 years.

Jones led the Nittany Lions in tackles for a loss this season, racking up 11.5 TFL in 2013 for a total of 42 yards. He was fifth on the team with 56 tackles, had three sacks, and one fumble recovery. His 56 tackles were the most of any defensive tackle in the Big Ten this season.

Although Jones is the only Penn State senior to have accepted a bid to the Senior Bowl so far, the football team anticipates that other players will play in the game this season. Earlier this week, offensive lineman John Urschel and linebacker Glenn Carson accepted invitations to play in another postseason showcase game, the East-West Shrine Game.
