There are a few post season all star games out there but theSenior Bowl is the big daddy showcase event. Every year the game takes the country's best senior collegiate football players and top NFL draft prospects on teams representing the North and South that are coached by the entire coaching staffs of two National Football League teams.
"This is a special honor for Khalil, his teammates and our football program, Khalil is a high-achieving person in his personal life, as a football player and as a student and I couldn't be more proud of him."
Mack leads Buffalo with 59 tackles (34 solo), 11.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and three interceptions. He leads the Mid-American Conference in tackles for loss and sacks. He currently ranks third in NCAA history with 67.5 career tackles for loss and his 13 career forced fumbles is one shy of the NCAA record.
