The football season is beginning to wind down. The college football bowl season is upon us, and NFL teams are duking it out for a playoff spot with just three weeks remaining in the regular season. That means it’s also time for all the Pro-Bowl shenanigans to start to take shape, and that’s exactly what we have for you.

On Wednesday, Pro-Bowl rosters were announced, and there are six former Buckeyes that will be playing a little exhibition All-Star game inside Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 6.

And yeah, once again, the Pro Bowl coincides with the off week in-between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, so surely some of the players hope they will be skipping all the festivities and preparing for a bigger game in Inglewood, California.

But we digress and get back to the former Ohio State players that made AFC and NFC rosters for the Pro-Bowl 2022.

FIRST … AFC Pro-Bowl Buckeyes
