Caldwell's Last-play TD Gives South Senior Bowl Win

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Andre Caldwell scored on a 2-yard end around on the final play of the Senior Bowl to lift the South to a 17-16 win over the North.

The Florida receiver took the handoff from his team's former rival, Tennessee's Erik Ainge, and plunged across the goal line.

Caldwell celebrated with a Gator chomp in the final game of his college career, and Georgia's Brandon Coutu made the extra point.

Ainge took over at his own 14 with 2:48 left after the North was stopped on fourth down.

He completed six passes and benefited from a pass interference call and some nice runs for extra yardage by his receivers.

Ainge completed 13 of 21 passes for 159 yards, all of it coming in the second half.

Michigan's Chad Henne accounted for both North touchdowns with a 36-yard pass to Lavelle Hawkins of California in the first half and a 4-yarder to Missouri tight end Martin Rucker with 14:32 left in the game.

He and Ainge were the only quarterbacks to avoid costly mistakes.
