    The University of Houston's Case Keenum will participate in the 14th annual All-Star Football Challenge, an exciting, live skills competition featuring college football's brightest stars. The program is scheduled to air Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, at 3 p.m. CT on ESPN2 and will have encore airings at 3:30 p.m. CT on Feb. 12 and Feb. 26 on ESPN.

    The All-Star Football Challenge, which is annually hosted in the Super Bowl city, is one of seven live television properties owned and operated by Intersport, an award-winning media and marketing agency. Individual events in the 2012 All-Star Football Challenge include: FRS Healthy Performance QB Scramble, U.S. Marines Obstacle Course, Wide Receiver Hands Competition and the Lineman Challenge. Participants will then be divided into Offensive (Mercedes-Benz Routes Competition) and Defensive Team Competitions. To conclude the program, the players will be divided into two teams for a final Full Team Competition.

    Keenum finished one of the most remarkable college football careers ever this year. The senior leaves Houston as the NCAA all-time leader in total offense, passing yards, touchdowns and completions. Keenum also holds the distinction of being the only quarterback in Division I FBS history to throw for more than 5,000 yards in three seasons. The Cougars had an incredible season, finishing with a 13-1 record with a TicketCity Bowl win over Penn St.

    Alumni of the All-Star Football Challenge include three Heisman Trophy winners (Ron Dayne, Troy Smith and Jason White) and 41 first-round NFL draft picks, such as: Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Santana Moss, Vince Young, Vernon Davis, Donovan McNabb and Edgerrin James.

    The 2012 All-Star Football Challenge will be held at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 2. This year's event will take place at SportZone, located at 6601 Coffman Road, Indianapolis, Ind., 46268.
