Anthony Allen was officially named to the Senior Bowl today. The game is at 3 p.m. on January 29, 2011 in Mobile, Alabama and will be broadcast on the NFL Network.
Allen, a senior running back for the Jackets, transfered from Louisville and took over the B-Back position from Jonathan Dwyer.

He helped the Jackets lead the nation in rushing at 323 yards per game.
The coach of the south team for the Senior Bowl? None other than Chan Gailey, currently of the Buffalo Bills and former Georgia Tech coach.
