Rapper NELLY scored four touchdowns to claim victory and the Most Valuable Player honour at MTV's annual pre-Super Bowl ROCK'N'JOCK game in Houston, Texas, on Saturday (31JAN04).

Played on a field near the RELIANT STADIUM, where the real SUPER BOWL took place on Sunday (01FEB04), the HOT IN HERRE star's ROCK STARS team beat rivals THE BEAT DOWN 93-74.

Nelly's team, led by action man THE ROCK, featured SCOOBY DOO star MATTHEW LILLARD, Murphy Lee, socialite-turned-reality TV wildchild Nicole Richie and athletes Warren Moon and SHANNON SHARPE.

The losers, led by TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS star WARREN SAPP, featured TARA REID, Fefe Dobson, reality TV star Nick Lachey and American Idol champ RUBEN STUDDARD.

The fun game presented Sapp and The Rock, real name Dwayne Johnson, the chance to catch up - the pair were former college football teammates.

Meanwhile, Richie managed to pile on the points for her team at half-time by riding a mechanical bull for 15 seconds.
