One more time: Foles to Criner for the TDby Anthony Gimino on Jan. 28, 2012, under Arizona football
Former Arizona Wildcats Nick Foles and Juron Criner showed in the Senior Bowl what UA fans saw many times in the past few years — a touchdown connection.
Foles’ 20-yard pass down the middle to Criner, just over the goal line, gave the South team its only touchdown in Saturday’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. The North won 23-13.
Foles completed 11 of 15 passes for 136 yards and a touchdowns. None of his attempts were intercepted. Criner caught six passes for 77 yards.
The next big event for each is the NFL Combine from Feb. 22-28 in Indianapolis.
Foles tied the UA record for career passing touchdowns with 67 in his three-year career. Criner set the school record with 32 touchdown receptions — all but one came in the past three seasons.
Here are stories I wrote about each after their week of practice in front of scouts:
