MOBILE, Ala. — Chris Chandler of Washington got the ball rolling with a first-quarter touchdown pass, and the North went on to down the South, 21-7, Saturday in the Senior Bowl.
"All I had to do was pull the trigger a couple of times," Chandler said.
Don McPherson of Syracuse also threw for a touchdown as the North built a 14-0 halftime lead and was never seriously challenged.
"The defense played hard, the offense made the big plays," North Coach Chuck Knox of the Seattle Seahawks said.
"They had the two big plays and the interception," South Coach Jim Mora of the New Orleans Saints said, referring to the two touchdown passes and an interception that set up the other North score.
"We had a hard time stopping their running game," Mora said. The North netted 231 yards rushing.
Chandler engineered a 99-yard drive in the first quarter and completed a 36-yard touchdown pass to Willie (Flipper) Anderson of UCLA.
