The Nation team was able to beat team Texas 24-13 in the 2013 Texas vs. the Nation All-Star game. With the Nation victory, the all-time series is now tied 3-3 between Texas and the Nation. Tulane QB Ryan Griffin was named the game’s MVP, he earned the honor after completing 14-of-18 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
“I thought the week went well,” Griffin said. “I just tried to show that I could play at the next level – try to compete and show my skills – and try as hard as I could. It was a good time. We only practiced 10-15 plays, so when I got in there it was nice to execute those plays. I thought we did a pretty good job of coming together in a week and making it look crisp, clean and sharp.”
