Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist threw for a touchdown and ran for another to lead the National to a 34-0 victory over the American on Saturday at the second annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Crist completed 7-of-10 passes for 61 yards and was named MVP. He opened the scoring with a 1-yard run in the second quarter and followed it with a 7-yard touchdown pass on the next possession to help stake the National to a 17-0 halftime lead. South Carolina kicker Adam Yates kicked field goals of 40 and 41 yards, Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel threw for a score, and Texas Tech running back Eric Stephens Jr. ran for a touchdown as well to round out the National scoring. The American squad fumbled the ball seven times, turned it over five times, and didn't cross midfield until late in the third quarter. Crist led the National team to a 17-0 lead in the first half. The National poured it in the second half, aided in large part by the American squad turning the ball over on its first two possessions. Virginia Tech's Bruce Taylor ended the American's first possession of the half when he picked off a pass from Southern Utah quarterback Brad Sorenson and returned it deep into American territory, setting up a 40-yard field goal by Yates. South Carolina State's Jakari Allen then fumbled away the ensuing kick return, and six plays later Tuel rolled to his right and found Norfolk State wide receiver Xavier Boyce for a 9-yard touchdown strike. Stephens Jr. finished off the scoring with a 1-yard plunge up the middle in the fourth. Tuel started and completed all eight of his passes for 64 yards. Former Eagles, Chiefs and Rams head coach Dick Vermeil coached the National squad while former New York Jets coach Herm Edwards guided the American side. Vermeil coached the National team to a 20-14 victory in last year's inaugural game.
