Penn State's durable running back Tony Hunt has accepted an invitation to play in the Under Armour Senior Bowl game held in Mobile, Alabama, a game Penn State was well represented in last season with Tamba Hali, Michael Robinson and Anwar Phillips all participating.

Tony Hunt will play for the North All-Star squad in the Under Armour Senior Bowl to be held Saturday, January 27, 2007, at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, according to Yahoo! Sports. Both Senior Bowl teams are coached by the entire coaching staffs from two National Football League teams.
