UNI's Fountain earns offensive MVP at Shrine Game

(STATS) - Nothern Iowa wide receiver Daurice Fountain was already enjoying a breakout week during the practices at the 93rd annual East-West Shrine Game.

But Fountain saved his best for last Saturday as he earned the game's Offensive MVP award, although his East team fell to the West 14-10 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Fountain caught three passes for 61 yards and returned two punts for 40 yards. Included were a 38-yard catch and run that set up the East for a field goal and a 30-yard punt.
