Notre Dame's Shane Walton returned an interception 99 yards for a fourth quarter touchdown to highlight the North's 17-to-0 victory over the South in the Senior Bowl. Walton picked off Chris Simms of Texas and raced untouched to the game's clinching score and the longest return in the game's history.
Penn State's Larry Johnson was named the game's MVP after carrying 13 times for a game-high 59 yards. Three turnovers and a missed field goal foiled the South's offensive day and led to the shutout.
Kliff Kingsbury from Texas Tech was 4 of 7 for 28 yds.
