IU’s Feeney Headed to Senior Bowl


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana fifth-year senior offensive lineman Dan Feeney has accepted an invitation to play in the 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the game announced today. Feeney is the second Hoosier in as many years to participate in the bowl, joining current Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Jason Spriggs.

The game will take place on Jan. 28, 2017, at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. It will be televised on the NFL Network at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Feeney, an Outland Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award Watch Lister for the second straight season, anchors the IU offensive line. He was a consensus preseason first team All-American after earning first team honors one season ago.

The Orland Park, Ill., native has made his first career starts at right tackle over the last three weeks after 41 starts at right guard. In his 44 career games, Feeney has allowed just two sacks (3,201 snaps).

During the offseason, Feeney was recognized as the 37th-best player in country by ESPN, the 10th-best senior by NFL.com and the top guard in the country by Phil Steele, Lindy’s, USA Today and 247Sports. He has 46 knockdowns and one sack allowed in 243 called pass attempts and 482 snaps in 26 quarters of action this year.

Feeney did not allow a sack in 475 called pass attempts and finished with a team-best 102 knockdowns in 1,069 snaps in 2015.
