Get ready football fans and junkies. Get ready to tell your wives and girlfriends that you want to watch THREE football games Sunday. NBC Sports would be very appreciative as they will be airing the U.S. Army All-American Bowl before the NFL wildcard games begin. Kick off is at 1:00 PM ET, and the game will be called by Bob Papa (bio) and Pat Haden (bio).

Here is the release issued by NBC Sports.


NEW YORK - Jan. 7, 2010 - Tim Tebow, Adrian Peterson and Mark Sanchez are some of the famous alumni of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the nation’s premier high school football all-star game, which plays its 10th contest this Saturday at 1 p.m. ET live on NBC Sports.

Bob Papa will call the action with Pat Haden providing analysis. Also providing commentary are reporters Lewis Johnson and Marty Snider, and high school football recruiting experts Mike Farrell and Tom Lemming.

Ninety of the nation’s top high school football players take the field in a classic East vs. West match up at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, to give fans a sneak peek at some of the nation’s top college prospects, including Rivals No. 1 overall rated player, OL Seantrel Henderson (Saint Paul, MN; Cretin-Derham Hall High).

One of the game’s most exciting traditions continues this year when a number of currently undecided players - including Rivals No. 9 overall rated player DL Sharrif Floyd (Philadelphia, PA; Washington High) - will announce their college choice live on the air during the game.
