The Pac-12 recently concluded one of its best seasons with six bowl wins and nine bowl-eligible teams. Now, the conference will also be one the most heavily represented in this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl with 11 players selected so far.
Pac-12 representation at next week’s 65th playing of the nation’s premier senior showcase will be highlighted by Arizona State’s Consensus All-American defensive tackle Will Sutton.
