For those of you currently in college football withdrawal, I’ve got just the fix for you. The 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl, college football’s all-star game, will be held on Saturday, January 30th, and here is everything you need to about the game (and the week leading up to the game).

Where, When, How to Watch

Where: Hancock Whitney Stadium, at the University of South Alabama, in Mobile, AL

(This is the first time since the inaugural Senior Bowl game in 1950 that the game will be played somewhere other than Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The inaugural game, in 1950, took place at Gator Bowl Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida. This, the 72nd Senior Bowl, will remain in Mobile, however, will be played Hancock Whitney Stadium at the University of South Alabama.)

When: Saturday, January 30th, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. CST

How to Watch: The 2021 Senior Bowl will be broadcasted live on the NFL Network

Who will the coaches be in the 2021 Senior Bowl?

Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers coaching staff will coach one of the all-star teams, while Brian Flores and the Miami Dolphins coaching staff will coach the other. These coaches will lead their respective rosters in practice throughout the week leading up to game day on Saturday, January 30th.

The Dolphins have the third and 18th picks in this year’s NFL Draft. The Panthers have the eighth pick. Both teams will get an in-person look at this year’s top prospects.
