The North gained a lead in the second quarter of the Senior Bowl, thanks to big plays by Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount and Murray State DE Austen Lane.

Blount ran for a 14-yard TD 20 seconds into the quarter, and the extra point gave the North a 10-3 advantage.

A bad snap by South C J.D. Walton was recovered by Lane and he ran it into the endzone with 9:53 left to play in the first half, and Brett Swenson's extra point pushed the North's lead to 17-3.

Swenson then booted his kickoff out of bounds, giving the South great field position, but Michigan DE Brandon Graham sacked West Virginia QB Jarrett Brown for a loss of three on the first play of the South's drive. The South punted the ball away after losing nine more yards on the drive, but East Carolina's C.J. Wlson recovered North QB Sean Canfield's fumble on a sack by Troy LB Cameron Sheffield.

The South drove 17 yards on six plays before Alabama PK Leigh Tiffin made a 33-yard field goal, trimming the North's lead to 11.

The North had a chance to add to its lead as it drove to the South's 25-yard line, but Canfield was picked off by USC S Taylor Mays on a pass to the endzone. Canfield stared down his intended receiver and Mays read it all the way.

Oklahoma State QB Zac Robinson threw to Tulane WR Jeremy Williams for a 37-yard gain on first play afte the interception, and Robinson tossed a 19-yard TD pass to Alabama TE Colin Peek to complete the 82-yard drive, which left the South trailing, 17-13, at halftime.
