Duke’s Jones sparks North to Se­nior Bowl win

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Duke’s Daniel Jones threw a touch­down pass and ran for an­other score in the third quar­ter in Mo­bile, Ala., to lead the North to a 34-24 vic­tory over the South on Sat­ur­day in the Se­nior Bowl.

Pro­jected as a likely first-round pick, Jones capped the week­long au­di­tion for NFL teams with an ef­fi­cient 8-of-11, 115-yard pass­ing per­for­mance. North Carolina State’s Ryan Fin­ley took over in the fourth quar­ter with sim­i­lar re­sults.

Jones, one of 11 ju­nior grad­u­ates in the game, and Fin­ley ig­nited a North team that trailed 12-3 at half­time only to score on its first five drives of the sec­ond half.
