East-West Shrine Classic
At Houston
West vs. East, 4 p.m. (ESPN2).
Series: West leads 45-33-5.
Last Meeting: West 31, East 13, Jan. 19, 2008.
What's at Stake
NFL scouts will be the most interested spectators, taking notes on every move these college All-Stars make. Big-time programs such as USC, Oklahoma, LSU are represented side-by-side with smaller ones, like Norfolk State, Tennessee State and Richmond. For the players who never got to perform on national television this season, the game is a big opportuniy to make a dramatic impression on NFL teams heading into the combine on Feb. 20. And players who are better-known commodities can damage their stock with a bad performance, said former Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams, now a personnel executive with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who's been watching practices this week.
Key Matchup

Players to watch
East: Missouri QB Chase Daniel. The former Missouri star ranked third in the Big 12 in passing yards (309.6 yards per game), behind Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Texas Tech's Graham Harrell. The 6-foot Daniel needs to prove he can overcome his lack of height to be an effective NFL quarterback.
West: Rice WR Jarett Dillard. The NCAA's all-time leader in touchdown receptions (59) must convince scouts he can make the transition to the pros after setting numerous records in one of the nation's weakest conferences.
