Former Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside will participate in the 2018 State Farm All-Star Football Challenge at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The 20th edition of the All-Star Football Challenge will air Friday, Feb. 2, at 9 p.m. on ESPN2.

Woodside finished his Toledo career as the school’s all-time leader in passing yards (10,514), passing touchdowns (93), and passing efficiency (162.87 percent). His 93 touchdowns are fifth-most in MAC history, and his passing efficiency rating is 12th-highest in Football Bowl Subdivision history.

As a senior this past season, he led Toledo to a Mid-American Conference Championship, earning MAC Offensive Player of the Year honors and the Vern Smith Award as the league’s MVP. Woodside led the Rockets to a 29-9 record as starting quarterback, including an 11-3 mark in 2017.

The six teams in the competition will consist of four players from the same conference that will compete for conference supremacy in a series of skills challenges. The conferences represented are the ACC, the Big Ten, the Big 12, the Pac-12, the SEC, and four of the best players outside of the Power Five that will be called the Wild Card team.

Joining Woodside on the Wild Card team will be University of Texas at San Antonio defensive end Marcus Davenport, University of Texas at El Paso guard Will Hernandez, and Boise State wide receiver Cedric Wilson.

Each player will individually participate in a timed event and then finish with a team event. Events will all be timed and have individual winners who will compile into a cumulative score to determine the winning team.
