2011 Senior Bowl: Jake Locker Starts Slow, South Leads By Three

The South took the ball first in the Senior Bowl, jumping out to an early 3-0 lead over the North on a 23-yard Josh Jasper field goal in the first quarter. Quarterback Christian Ponder led the way for the South, completing 3-5 passes for 70 yards to set up the score. The field goal capped a 10 play, 72 yard drive to open the game.

Washington quarterback Jake Locker hit the field as the starter for the North, but was unable to move the ball at all, leading to a quick three-and-out. Locker completed 1-2 passes on the drive, missing on his first before finding Kendall Hunter on a screen pass for two yards on third down. The three quarterbacks on each side will be rotating in and out throughout the game, leaving each small windows to impress.

So far in Mobile, Alabama, the South is in control as they move the ball at will on the North defense. The three South running backs have combined for 42 yards on nine carries. Even Ponder has gotten in on the action, carrying twice for 11 yards.

Early in the first quarter, it’s the South on top, 3-0. Stay with our Senior Bowl StoryStream for score updates throughout.
