The Michigan connection of John Langeloh and Jarrod Bunch provided the East with three field goals and a touchdown in a 23-10 victory over the West in the Hula Bowl on Saturday.
Langeloh, a kicker from Michigan State, tied a Hula Bowl record with field goals of 31, 42 and 22 yards. He was named the game's most valuable offensive player.Bunch, a Michigan running back, twisted and broke tackles to score a second-quarter touchdown.
Oregon quarterback Bill Musgrave moved from the West roster to the East team and threw a touchdown pass to Florida State's Lawrence Dawsey. Musgrave replaced Miami's Craig Erickson, who sprained his right knee during practice.
Illinois linebacker Darrick Brownlow, the game's defensive MVP, intercepted a pass from Hawaii's Garrett Gabriel and recovered a fumble to stop two West drives in the fourth quarter. Frank Giannetti of Penn State also recovered a fourth-quarter West fumble.
Virginia's Shawn Moore, statistically the nation's most efficient passer, provided the game's most exciting moment in the third quarter. He scrambled 20 yards back into his end zone, rolled to his right and hit Dawsey with a 32-yard pass that set up a field goal.
Langeloh provided the only scoring in a lackluster first quarter by kicking a 31-yard field goal with two minutes left. Langeloh made 11 of 14 field goals during the regular season.
Bunch broke two tackles, spun and stretched backwards into the end zone with 11:58 left in the second quarter to give the East a 10-0 lead.
The West got on the board when Colorado's Michael Pritchard coasted 26 yards on a reverse for a touchdown.
Musgrave, Oregon's career leader in passing yards, directed the East's next touchdown drive. He threw a 53-yard bomb to Anthony Morgan of Tennessee that got the East to the 25-yard line, then hit Dawsey over the middle for 12-yard touchdown with 4:06 left in second quarter.
Keen kicked a 25-yard field goal with 42 seconds left in the half to pull the West back to 17-10 at halftime. Two Langeloh field goals accounted for all the second-half scoring.
