East-West Shrine Game 2012: West Rallies Late For 24-17 Win

A 10-point fourth quarter rally gave the West squad a 24-17 victory at the 2012 East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on Saturday.

The West team trailed the East 17-14 at halftime, but a 35-yard field goal by Missouri Western's Greg Zuerlein with 13:21 left in regulation tied the score before a 9-yard touchdown run by Louisiana Tech's Lennon Creer with 47 seconds remaining proved to be the decisive score in the game.

Tyler Hansen finished as the leading passer for the winning squad with 144 yards on 12-17 passing. His East counterpart, B.J. Coleman, finished with 168 yards on 10-15 passing.

Creer finished with 80 yards on 15 carries. Alfred Morris led the East with 31 yards on nine carries. George Bryan was the leading receiver for the West with 55 yards on three receptions and Chase Ford was the big receiver for the East with one 64-yard reception.
