With every holiday season comes the NCAA football bowl series. This year, when settling into your couch to take in this year’s games, make sure to keep an eye out for the San Clemente football alumni that will hit the gridiron.
The brother duo of Christian and Will Tober will be on the field when the USC Trojans square off against Georgia Tech in the Hyundai Sun Bowl on December 31 in El Paso, Texas. Will, a redshirt junior, has played in two games so far this season for the Trojans and has two total tackles. Christian is a reserve walk-on wide receiver and a first-year freshman. The Trojans, who entered the season atop many college polls, stumbled down the home stretch, losing to Arizona, Oregon, UCLA and Notre Dame in four out of the five final games of the season.
Former Triton offensive tackle and current Stanford Cardinal Kyle Murphy will be playing in one of the biggest games of the year, as Stanford takes on Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl on January 2. Murphy, a freshman, has seen some time playing with the kicking unit.
UCLA freshman wide receiver Nick Pasquale will get his first taste of the college bowl series when the Bruins take the field against Baylor in the Holiday Bowl on December 27.
