MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Florida State's Christian Ponder threw two
touchdown passes, including a clinching 23-yarder to TCU's Jeremy
Kerley in the South's 24-10 Senior Bowl victory over the North on
Ponder completed 7 of 13 passes for 132 yards, including several
big ones to a onetime rival Leonard Hankerson of Miami.
Ponder was looking for a happier transition to an NFL career
after missing the ACC championship with an elbow injury and most of
the Seminoles' bowl game thanks to a concussion. Ponder led scoring
drives on the South's first two possessions and put on the
finishing touches after the North rallied from a 17-0 deficit.
Hankerson had 100 yards on five catches, including an 18-yard
touchdown and a 48-yarder to set up another score - both from
Washington quarterback Jake Locker led a touchdown drive but
also had offensive linemen save him on two fumbles for the North.
