    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern senior linebacker David Nwabuisi (Houston, Texas/Episcopal) is preparing to take part in the 2013 Texas vs. The Nation college all-star game, slated for Saturday, Feb. 2 in Allen, Texas. Nwabuisi will line up for a 'Texas' side that is a collection of college football seniors who are originally from Texas or who played their college ball in the state against players from around the country.

    This year, Nwabuisi is one of eight outgoing Big Ten seniors competing in the game and one of three on the Texas-based roster.

    A co-captain for the 10-win Wildcats, Nwabuisi started all 13 games and earned honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades from the league's media voters. He ranked 13th in the conference with 7.46 tackles per game and tied for the team lead with three interceptions, including one against Michigan State that he returned 43 yards for a touchdown.

    The Houston native appeared in all 51 games during his Northwestern career, registering 216 tackles with 20 TFL's, and was a key ingredient in his class becoming the winningest senior class in Northwestern football history.

     

     

    The game is slated to air nationally on Fox Sports Southwest (check local listings for channel locations).
