The "NFLPA Collegiate Bowl" is a post-season college football game for NFL draft-eligible college players. The event was founded in 2012 by the National Football League Players Association. The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl is held yearly at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. In January 2012, the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) founded the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl after sponsoring the Texas vs the Nation game in previous years. The inaugural NFLPA Collegiate Bowl was open to NFL draft-eligible underclassmen players but, beginning with the second annual event, only draft-eligible seniors were allowed to participate.
