Team USA plays the International squad in 2012 International Bowl on Wednesday February 1, 2012 at 7 p.m. at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex in Round Rock.

This will be the third annual International Bowl against high school aged football players from four continents on the International Federation of American Football (IFAF).

Fifty U.S. high school seniors will make up Team USA. A national team exemption granted by the NCAA allows high school seniors to play for USA Football and not have their participation count as one of two permitted all-star game appearances.
The International Bowl is a national team competition, not an all-star game.
