East beats West 26-9 to win Toyota All-Star Classic

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee's East All-Stars beat the West All-Stars 26-9 Saturday afternoon on the campus of Carson-Newman College to win the 2010 Toyota East-West All-Star Classic.

Behind touchdown passes from Anderson County's Tanner Williams and CAK's Quinn Epperly, the East jumped out to a 17-0 lead and the West was never able to get closer than ten.

Turnovers did in the West squad, as the West committed six turnovers.

The stats were much closer than the score. Both teams had 342 passing yards, but both teams also struggled to run the football. The East ended up with zero yards on the ground, while the West had negative one.

Saturday's showdown was the fourth time the classic was played. With the East's win the series is now tied 2-2.
