Big Ten performances from NFLPA game
By ESPN.com staff
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
