The Senior Bowl usually has the best players of any of the postseason college all-star games. And it's that way again this season with most of the top senior players hoping to show what they can do for a bevy of pro scouts who have spent this week watching them work out.

Saturday's contest will have a little more interest for Big 12 fans for another reason. Texas and Oklahoma players will be pitted on different teams in the game, which begins at 7 p.m. ET from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. It will be shown on the NFL Network.

I know it's not quite like the Red River Rivalry, but it still might be interesting when Texas wide receiver Quan Cosby of the South runs some routes against Oklahoma linebacker/defensive back Nic Harris of the North team in Saturday's game.

Below is a list of Big 12 players who will be participating with their uniform numbers in parentheses. And here's a link for complete rosters for the North and South teams from the Senior Bowl's Web site.

North: Oklahoma LB-DB Nic Harris (No. 5), Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell (No. 6), Oklahoma WR Juaquin Iglesias (No. 9), Missouri DB William Moore (No. 11), Oklahoma WR Manny Johnson (No. 22), Oklahoma T Phil Loadholt (No. 79), Oklahoma State TE Brandon Pettigrew (No. 87) and Missouri DT Ziggy Hood (No. 94).

South: Texas WR Quan Cosby (No. 6).
