Former Kansas University quarterback Dayne Crist got back on the winning track Friday night at the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game in Tucson, Ariz., helping lead the West all-stars to a 40-7 rout of the East.
Crist, who started seven games during his one season at KU and was benched midway through the year, was one of two quarterbacks on the West roster and played multiple series.
He finished 6-of-12 passing for 62 yards and one touchdown and also was sacked once.
His lone TD pass came in the third quarter, when he led an 11-play, 85-yard scoring drive that spanned 5:15 and resulted in a 10-yard strike from Crist to former San Jose State running back Ina Liaina.
Next up for Crist is a trip to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 19. He will join fellow Jayhawks Trevor Marrongelli, Duane Zlatnik, Toben Opurum and Josh Williams in playing in the all-star game sponsored by the NFL Players Association.
