MOBILE, Ala. (Sports Network) - Dan LeFevour threw for a touchdown and ran for another score as North dominated South, 31-13, in the 61st Senior Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
LeFevour, of Central Michigan, finished with a modest 97 yards passing on 5-
of-10 completions and rushed for 12 yards for the North, who have won four of
the last six meetings.
Cincinnati's Mardy Gilyard posted 103 yards and a TD reception on five catches
and Oregon's LeGarrette Blount added a rushing touchdown for the victors.
Zac Robinson from Oklahoma State finished with 176 yards, one touchdown and
one interception on 12-of-21 completions for the South, who claimed victory in
2008 and 2009.
Florida's Tim Tebow was limited to 50 yards passing on eight completions and
four yards rushing on four carries. Tulane's Jeremy Williams had six
receptions for 82 yards.
LeFevour gave North some breathing room on a one-yard plunge with 3:52 left in
the third quarter for a 24-13 game, capping a brief 29-yard drive set up by a
long punt return.
Gilyard then hauled in a 32-yard pass for a touchdown from LeFevour with 11:21
left in regulation to seal the win for North.
Both teams scored in the opening quarter, as Michigan State kicker Brett
Swenson's 43-yard field goal put North on the board, then Leigh Tiffin of
Alabama countered for South on another 43-yard attempt.
Blount's 14-yard run early in the second put North ahead by seven, then a six-
yard fumble recovery for a touchdown from Murray State's Austen Lane gave
North a 17-3 edge.
South rebounded with a 33-yard make from Tiffin and Colin Peek's 19-yard TD
reception from Robinson to get within 17-13 at the half.
