Jake Locker got another shot at the quarterback spot for the North and finally got into a rhythm as the North offense began to move again. Locker hit Titus Young for 15 yards on the second play of the drive then hit Da’Rel Scott for 34 a few plays later on a checkdown. He nearly turned the ball over on the next play, however, coughing it up on a scramble, his second fumble of the game.
Locker threw a great ball to Austin Pettis in the end zone, leaving the cornerback no choice but to interfere on the play. With first and goal from the one, the North converted as Scott punched it in. Locker was 2-3 on the drive for 49 yards, with the only incompletion coming when Young was called for offensive pass interference.
The North is back in the ballgame after an anemic first half, finally finding a spark on offense. At the end of the third quarter, the South still leads the North, 17-10. For more on the game, check out our Senior Bowl StoryStream.
