Several Big East players were part of the winning side in Saturday's East-West Shrine Game, a showcase event for NFL hopefuls.

South Florida linebacker Kion Wilson had the biggest day from the Big East contingent. He had six tackles and a forced fumble in the East's 13-10 win.

"He has the potential to be a very good special-teams player, which he'll have to do if he wants to make it on the next level," wrote ESPN's Scouts Inc. in a game-day blog. "He's undersized, but has shown excellent instincts throughout the week."

UConn's Andre Dixon led the East team in rushing, but had only 24 yards on seven carries.

"Dixon has surprisingly looked hesitant at times today," Scouts Inc. wrote. "He's a downhill runner on film and during practices this week, so we didn't expect to see the stutter steps at the line of scrimmage today. He has room to improve as a receiver with his hands away from his frame and running crisper routes, but he's athletic enough to do it. He's also a willing pass-blocker who will step up and take on blitzing linebackers. Despite today's struggles, he'll be a good value for someone in the middle rounds."

The Huskies' Lindsey Witten had one tackle, and it was behind the line of scrimmage.

West Virginia's Alric Arnett, who had a strong week of practice leading up to the game, made three catches for 54 yards.

Pitt's Aaron Berry recovered a fumble for the East team.
