Hill rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries to lead the Stripes to a 31-3 victory over the Stars at Cramton Bowl, long home to the now-defunct Blue-Gray game traditionally played on Christmas Day. The Division II product had runs of 44 and 49 yards for two of the game's biggest plays, both setting up his touchdowns.
Hill was chosen offensive MVP by NFL scouts. The defensive MVP was Charles James of Charleston Southern, who had two tackles and a pass breakup.
Purdue's Robert Marve also had a strong performance in the showcase game for pro football prospects. He completed 10 of 13 passes for 142 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the Stripes.
