CARSON, Calif. (AP) - LSU fullback J.C. Copeland ran for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns, Stanford's Anthony Wilkerson ran for 67 yards and a touchdown and Team National used a second half surge to beat Team American 31-17 in the third annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Copeland, who never had a multi-touchdown game in 42 career games at LSU, was named MVP.
Hawaii quarterback Sean Schroeder completed 13 of 17 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown to lead the American.
The game was tied at 14 at halftime, but the National scored on its first three possessions of the second half to cruise to victory.
Former Chiefs, Eagles and Rams coach Dick Vermeil coached the National side while former Vikings and Cardinals coach Dennis Green coached the American squad. Vermeil has guided the National to victory in all three installments of the game.
