Big Ten performances from NFLPA game


It took a little while, but I've managed to find the full statistics from Saturday's NFLPA all-star game, which pitted Team Texas against Team Nation.

The Texas all-stars won 13-7, and nine Big Ten players participated in the game -- six for Team Nation, three for Team Texas (Wisconsin's Jay Valai was a late addition).

Here's how the Big Ten contingent fared:

  • Iowa receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos recorded game highs in both receptions (5) and receiving yards (77) for the Nation squad. DJK didn't wear an Iowa helmet in the game and instead sported this headgear.

  • Valai recorded six tackles for Team Texas

  • Illinois defensive end Clay Nurse recorded four tackles and a sack for Team Nation

  • Northwestern linebacker Quentin Davie recorded three tackles for Team Texas, while his college and all-star teammate, defensive tackle Corbin Bryant, had a sack and two tackles

  • Ohio State cornerback Devon Torrence recorded a tackle for Team Nation
