    EVANSTON, Ill. - Despite having just 10 players departing this year, the Northwestern University football team will be well-represented among the senior all-star games in the coming months.

    That will be especially true at the Kelly Tires Blue-Gray Classic, to be held Christmas Day in Montgomery, Ala. Northwestern head coach Randy Walker will be the defensive coordinator for the North team, and Jack Glowik -- who serves as Walker's defensive line coach at NU -- will also be on the staff.

    On January 22, senior tight end Jay Tant (Kettering, Ohio/Alter) will compete in the 51st annual Delchamps Senior Bowl, which will take place at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. Tant finished the 1999 season with 17 catches for 203 yards, both of which placed him third on the team, and was a consensus honorable mention All-Big Ten selection for the second year in a row.

    The Kelly Tires Blue-Gray Classic will be broadcast live Christmas Day on ABC at 11 a.m. CT, while the Delchamps Senior Bowl will be broadcast live January 22 on TBS at 1:30 p.m. CT.
