St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Lennon Creer's short touchdown run in the final minute Saturday lifted the West team to a 24-17 win over the East in the 87th annual East-West Shrine game.

The Louisiana Tech running back was named offensive MVP after taking a handoff up the middle almost untouched for the winning nine-yard score.
