Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles will take part in the All-Star Football Challenge the UA announced today. 

The Feb. 2 challenge features college football's brightest stars competing in a series of skills competitions. The event is held annually in the Super Bowl's host city, and is broadcast on Super Bowl Sunday. ESPN2 will broadcast this year's event from Indianapolis; it will air Feb. 5 at 2 p.m., Tucson-time. 

Past participants include Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Santana Moss, Vince Young, Vernon Davis, Donovan McNabb, Edgerrin James and others.

Foles, Arizona's all-time leading passer, is projected as an early-to-mid-round pick in this spring's NFL Draft. He's spending this week in Mobile, Ala., preparing for the Senior Bowl.
