2012 Senior Bowl: Kirk Cousins Throws Touchdown Pass In North's 23-13 Win

Saturday was the 2012 Senior Bowl where the best seniors from around the country lined up North vs. South and received one last showcase for NFL scouts before the combine and the draft.

As we told you earlier, three Michigan State Spartans -- Kirk Cousins, Trenton Robinson, and Brian Linthicum -- and one Michigan Wolverine -- Mike Martin -- participated in the game as teammates on the North squad. Their team would beat the South, 23-13.

The North never trailed after taking a 3-0 lead in the first quarter after Michigan State's Trenton Robinson recovered a fumble in South territory on the third play. The North's first play from scrimmage then went to MSU's tight end Brian Linthicum for nine yards, which turned out to be his only catch of the game.

Kirk Cousins quarterbacked the North at the end of the first half and to begin the second half (as well as a possession later in the second half), but did not look sharp, finishing just 5-of-11 with an interception and a touchdown. After throwing the interception near the end of the first half, he connected with Gerrell Robinson for a 41 yard touchdown to give the North a 20-6 lead in the third quarter. He finished with 115 yards.

Trenton Robinson had two tackles in addition to his fumble recovery. Michigan's Mike Martin had three total tackles.
