Joshua Dobbs, Josh Reynolds lead SEC's top performers in the 2017 Senior Bowl
The South Team outlasted the North Team, 16-15, in the Senior Bowl on Saturday.
After a week of competing against some of the best veterans that college football has to offer, some of the SEC’s former players stood out when the game began.
Former Texas A&M receiver Josh Reynolds stood out above all others, catching six passes for 96 yards and the South’s first touchdown of the game.

He wasn’t the only receiver from the SEC to make an impact, however. Mississippi State’s Fred Ross had five catches for 66 yards; Alabama’s O.J. Howard caught four balls for 39 yards and Former Ole Miss star Evan Engram had a 10-yard grab.
Several of those passes came from Tennessee’s record-setting quarterback, Josh Dobbs. Dobbs completed 12 of his 15 pass attempts for 104 yards, but he did throw an interception.
As expected, the SEC led the way on defense as well.
Former LSU linebacker Duke Riley led the South with seven tackles, and Auburn’s Montravius Adams was right behind him with six stops and a fumble recovery.
One of just two SEC players on the North, former Arkansas tight end Jeremy Sprinkle snagged one catch for 18 yards.
