MOBILE, Ala. — Ohio State wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher had a team-high five receptions for 62 yards in the North's 24-10 loss Saturday evening, at the Under Armour Senior Bowl in Mobile.

Sanzenbacher reeled in three grabs (8, 16, 6) on one drive in the third quarter — from Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick — setting up the North's first points of the game (field goal).

The Buckeyes' MVP hauled in a 23-yard pass earlier in the half from Kaepernick, as well as a grab of nine yards on the team's final drive of the game from Washington's Jake Locker.

Ohio State linebacker Ross Homan also fared well in the loss, recording three tackles for the North squad in limited action.

Each player will now prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis (Feb. 23-Mar. 1).

SIGNING DAY ... National Signing Day is this Wednesday, Feb. 2, and the Buckeyes still have some big names on their radar who are uncommitted.

The Buckeye Times will update all of the day's happenings, and will be on hand in Columbus with videos and statements from the Ohio State coaching staff.
