The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Future Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen threw for 183 yards and Oregon commit Royce Freeman rushed for three touchdowns as West beat East 28-6 in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday.

Allen started the game 8 for 8 and was responsible for a 114 of the West's 165 total yards in the first half. He connected on 9 of 13 passes in the first half and was 12 of 18 for the game.

Freeman had scores of 3, 1, and 9 yards.

The East managed just 16 yards on 18 plays in the first half and trailed 14-0.

Will Grier, who is headed to Florida, finished with 109 yards passing for the East, including the game's longest play from scrimmage - a 51-yard pass to Clemson recruit Demarre Kitt.

The East got on the board in the fourth quarter after a 1-yard touchdown by Sony Michel, a Georgia commit.

Freeman opened the scoring with his 3-yard touchdown for the West squad in the second quarter. Joe Mixon, heading to Oklahoma, capped the scoring in the first half with a 3-yard dash of his own and the West led 14-0 at halftime.

Mixon was named MVP of the game after a one rush and one reception (26 yards) performance.

The third quarter was much of the same. Freeman made it 21-0 after his 1-yard run capped a 60-yard drive. The East only managed one first down in the quarter and gained just 33 yards.

Freeman scored his third TD on a 9-yard dash to the corner of the end zone with 30 seconds left. Freeman finished with 21 yards on five carries.

The West got the lone turnover of the game on a Davion Hall fourth quarter interception of Georgia recruit Jacob Park.
