When and Where Is the Shrine Bowl?
The 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET today, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2023. The game will be played at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders and the UNLV Rebels college football program.
It’s the second consecutive year that Las Vegas has hosted the longest-running college football all-star game. Prior to 2022, the event was held in the state of Florida since 2010, with a two-year spell in the Orlando Citrus Bowl before finding an almost-permanent home at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
What To Watch for in the Shrine Bowl
The 2023 Shrine Bowl features the East Team coached by the Atlanta Falcons, taking on the West Team led by the New England Patriots coaching staff. With over 120 of the best 2023 NFL Draft prospects in Las Vegas, each roster is jam-packed with talent, but there are some prospects that demand a little more attention than others.
On the West Team offense, Boston College wide receiver Zay Flowers has become the hottest topic in Shrine Bowl and NFL draft coverage. The electric and explosive pass catcher makes the impossible look easy with his ludicrous stop-start agility and 0-60 in the blink-of-an-eye acceleration.
Thankfully for the East Team, they have a roster of top-tier defensive backs led by Jim Thorpe Award winner Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson. The TCU CB is one to watch, as is Texas CB D’Shawn Jamison, Coastal Carolina’s Lance Boykin, and Louisville’s Kei’Trel Clark, one of the best nickel backs in the class.
We all know football is dominated by the quarterback, and the Shrine Bowl is no different. Some scouts — according to Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline — believe that Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell could have the best NFL career of any player at the position in the 2023 NFL Draft class. Naturally, all eyes will be on the former Boilermaker today in Las Vegas.
