Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell struggled through a difficult performance during Saturday night's Under Armour Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Harrell completed 4 of 13 passes for the North team, which dropped a 35-18 decision to the South in the annual matchup of top senior talent.

The record-breaking Texas Tech quarterback started the game, but led the North on no scoring drives in his five possessions. His first three possessions were three-and-outs, directing the North to only two first downs in his playing time.

The most notable Big 12 performer was Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias of the North, who produced game-high totals of six receptions for 90 yards. Iglesias' 41-yard reception from Sam Houston State quarterback Rhett Bomar that was the game's longest play from scrimmage.

Here is how other Big 12 players performed in the game.

  • Missouri's Ziggy Hood (North) started at left defensive tackle and produced one assist.

  • Missouri's William Moore (North) started at strong safety, notched one tackle.

  • Texas' Quan Cosby (South) produced one reception for 15 yards.

  • Oklahoma's Phil Loadholt (North) started at right tackle and Oklahoma State's Brandon Pettigrew (North) started at tight end. Neither player had any recorded statistics.
