GREENVILLE, S.C.  – University of Tennessee senior defensive lineman Corey Miller has accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 College All Star Bowl on February 14, 2014.

This year, the College All Star Bowl will feature the Nationals, led by Clemson National Champion Head Coach Danny Ford, and the Americans, led by College Football Hall of Fame Head Coach Willie Jeffries of South Carolina State.
