Senior Bowl Notes

  • Southward accpeted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
  • On Tuesday, Southward made one of the most impressive plays of the week.  He was playing the backside CB on a double move on the other side of the field.  With no one threatening his zone, Southward took off for the sideline and broke up the pass intended for Wyoming WR Robert Herron.  The former Wyoming star was open by yards before Southward closed on him and made one of the best plays of the week.
  • The former Wisconsin star registered two tackles during the game on Saturday.
