Although the college football season is over, two of UC's football players were in competition this past weekend.

Derek Wolfe and Isaiah Pead participated for the North team in the 2012 Senior Bowl.

The North defeated the South 23-13 and Pead was named MVP after setting a Senior Bowl record with 98 yards on two punt returns in the first half. He was also the North's leading rusher with 31 yards on eight carries.

It was only the second time in the 62-year history of the Senior Bowl that a player from Cincinnati was named MVP. The last Bearcat to earn the honor was Jackie Lee in 1960.
