Logan Paulsen and Kai Forbath will be paying attention to:

Valero Alamo Bowl— UCLA vs. Tennessee— Jan. 2, San Antonio, Texas.

Tight end Logan Paulsen and kicker Kai Forbath, teammates together at UCLA, are the only Redskins that have stakes in a college bowl game today.

Paulsen was on the Bruin’s roster for five years (2005-2009) and had intermittent success as he struggled with various injuries.

After missing his junior year to a foot injury, however, he came back strong to finish his collegiate career.

His senior season was his best statistically, collecting career highs in receptions (29)  and receiving yards (362) as he helped lead the team to a 30-21 victory over Temple in the Eaglebank Bowl.

Forbath redshirted his first year at UCLA, but made 25-of-30 field goals to start his college career, which included a school-freshman-best 54 yarder against Oregon.

In his junior season (2009), Forbath received the Lou Groza award, recognizing the best college placekicker in the country. He was projected as the second best placekicker in the 2011 NFL Draft but went undrafted.

The Redskins signed Forbath in 2012. He converted on his first-career NFL field goal a week later, a 50 yarder at home against the Vikings.
