Garoppolo's TD pass helps East beat West

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jimmy Garoppolo threw a second-quarter touchdown pass and Nevin Lawson returned a fourth-quarter fumble 5 yards for another TD to lead the East to a 23-13 victory in the 89th East-West Shrine game on Saturday.

Coastal Carolina's Matt Hazel scored on the 1-yard scoring pass from Garoppolo, the Eastern Illinois standout who completed nine of 14 passes for 100 yards and no interceptions. Arkansas' Zach Hocker kicked three field goals for the East, including a 56-yarder that snapped a 13-13 tie early in the fourth quarter.

Nevin, a cornerback from Utah State, scooped up a fumble forced by Western Kentucky's Andrew Jackson to put the East up 23-13 with 9:38 to go.
