The North and South teams are tied at three after the first quarter of the Senior Bowl.
The North had a touchdown pass called back for holding on Idaho OG Mike Iupati with 7:59 to play, but it scored first on a 43-yard field goal by Michigan State's Brett Swenson later on the same drive. Cincinnati QB Tony Pike looked sharp, completing 5-of-7 passes for 45 yards. He was focusing on getting the ball to his college teammate, WR Mardy Gilyard, the only player to make more than one catch in the first quarter. Gilyard had two receptions for 21 yards.
The South, operating out of a no-huddle offense, fought back on the next possession. Alabama's Leigh Tiffin connected on a 43-yard field goal of his own. Tim Tebow completed 3-of-6 passes for 23 yards in the first quarter.
