Berkeley - Cal senior defensive end Mawuko Tugbenyoh and senior inside linebacker Keith Miller have accepted invitations to play in the Blue-Gray Game on Christmas Day.

Tugbenyoh had a sensational 1999 campaign, leading the Pacific-10 with 13 sacks, including three in the season finale at Stanford. The 6-1, 245-pounder may play some at linebacker in the post-season all-star game as that is possibly where the pro scouts project him as a NFL prospect.

Miller finished as Cal's second leading tackler this past season with 62 stops, including seven behind the line of scrimmage. He injured his shoulder in the second half of the USC game and his playing time was limited over the last three games of the season.

Both Miller and Tugbenyoh earned honorable mention Pac-10 honors.

The Kelly Blue-Gray Game will be televised live on ABC-TV on Christmas morning. Senior safety Pete Destefano is listed as an alternate for the Blue-Gray game, but could be added to the roster in case of injuries to other players.

Deltha O'Neal and Sekou Sanyika have been invited to several post-season all-star games and will make decisions on their participation.
