UM now has half of the ACC’s total participants, more than the entire Big 12 (7), Pac 10 (7) and Big East (4). This is the second consecutive year that Miami has had double-digit representation. Last season, 11 Canes participated in the Pro Bowl. At least five Miami players have been elected to participate nine times since 1999. The Pro Bowl takes place on Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
