Nick Scott, Koa Farmer Headed To NFLPA Bowl

Penn State football’s Nick Scott and Koa Farmer will return to the Rose Bowl for this year’s NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Scott and Farmer were both starters on Penn State’s defense throughout the 2018 season, and they’ll get one more shot to showcase their talents ahead of this spring’s NFL Draft. Penn State’s two representatives at the game will play for the national team at the NFLPA Collegiate bowl, which will kick off at 5 p.m. on January 19 and be broadcast on FS1.

Farmer was a big piece of the Nittany Lions’ linebacker corps this season, registering 52 tackles in 12 appearances. He began his collegiate career as a safety and kick returner before making the transition to linebacker ahead of the 2017 season.

Meanwhile, Scott was one half of Penn State’s strong safety duo with Garrett Taylor. He made 65 tackles, intercepted three passes, and even registered a sack in his senior year. Penn State’s defensive captain paid his dues on special teams early in his career before earning an important role on defense this season.

Last year, Troy Apke put in a MVP-worthy performance at the NFLPA Bowl, marking the start of an incredibly productive offseason for the safety. He went on to put on a show at the NFL Scouting Combine and was selected in the fourth round by the Washington Redskins as a result.

In addition to Scott and Farmer, Amani Oruwariye and Trace McSorley will also play in the Senior Bowl later this month. That game will kick off at 2:30 p.m. on January 26 in Mobile, AL, and you can watch it on the NFL Network.
