 MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Florida State

Florida State quarterback will be one of several former Texas prep stars playing in today's Senior Bowl.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Florida State's Christian Ponder threw two touchdown passes, including a clinching 23-yarder to TCU's Jeremy Kerley in the South's 24-10 Senior Bowl victory over the North on Saturday.
Ponder completed 7 of 13 passes for 132 yards, including several big ones to a onetime rival Leonard Hankerson of Miami.
Ponder was looking for a happier transition to an NFL career after missing the ACC championship with an elbow injury and most of the Seminoles' bowl game thanks to a concussion. Ponder led scoring drives on the South's first two possessions and put on the finishing touches after the North rallied from a 17-0 deficit.
Hankerson had 100 yards on five catches, including an 18-yard touchdown and a 48-yarder to set up another score -- both from Ponder.
Washington quarterback Jake Locker led a touchdown drive but also had offensive linemen save him on two fumbles for the North.
