South dominating North in Senior Bowl, 20-3 at half

Dee Ford, Kolton Browning AP

As if you needed another example of just how good the college football talent is in the south, the South is leading the North 20-3 at halftime in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

Alabama wide receiver Kevin Norwood has 42 receiving yards and a touchdown, but Colorado State’s Crockett Gillmore leads all players with 51 yards and a touchdown and two of the better catches in the half.¬†Auburn defensive lineman Dee Ford has been having a productive game on the line, always finding his way in the backfield regardless of the North quarterback. Ford has a pair of sacks and a deflected pass right back in the face of Miami quarterback Stephen Morris.

Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr had a great week of practice and has established some momentum heading closer to the NFL Draft, and he tossed the first touchdown of the game midway through the first quarter. Carr’s pass was slightly behind Gillmore on the run, but the Rams standout managed to get his hands on the football and run the rest of the way to the end zone on a 17-yard scoring play. The other touchdown of the half was tossed by another Mountain West quarterback, San Jose State’s David Fales. Fales managed to find a wide open Norwood while on the move to get away from pressure midway through the second quarter.

Auburn kicker Cody Parkey has kicked two field goals, one from 50 yards and a second from 39 yards, to help pad the South lead.

    If he can stay healthy, some NFL team is going to be very, very glad that they drafted Dee Ford.

    Shout out to Kevin Norwood. He’s been a consistent offensive asset on the field in his tenure at BAMA. I think he’ll do very well in the draft…

    So Auburn seniors are on the South but Miami (FL) players are on the North?

    Also, why does the South have Fales when SJSU is north of Fresno State and Carr, assigned to the North?

    Who split these teams up, Rice and Sanders?

    EDIT: now I look like an idiot, Carr and Fales are both on the South. Stupid me for thinking a touchdown pass to a player from the state of Colorado would normally be a score for a north team.

    But we do have Baylor, Rice, Miami, Louisiana-Lafayette, UCLA and Louisiana Tech grads on the North with Utah, Colorado State, BYU, Eastern Illinois, Fresno State, Montana and Princeton grads representing the South.

    Norwood won’t be drafted high, but he will be a steal for some team. He makes the big catches, gets first downs when you have to have them. He has also done some great work off the field with sick children. I wish him, and all the other seniors, the best of luck going into their next step.
