Crist completed seven of 10 passes for 61 yards and was named MVP. He opened the scoring with a one-yard run in the second quarter and followed it with a seven-yard TD 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.

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.
