Catch up all the action from this past weekend in the CAA, including the continued struggles of Delaware.
After playing mistake-free football for 4 straight weeks, Villanova was caught out by a multitude of errors in losing their first CAA game to Richmond on Saturday afternoon. The loss put Villanova in a 3-way tie for 2nd place in the CAA (keep in mind ODU is not eligible for the conference title).
Here's how the conference looks after the past weekend of action. Links to recaps of the games are below the standings.
|William & Mary||1-2||.333||1-1||0-1||W1||2-4||.333||1-2||1-2||W2|
Note: Old Dominion was not in action this past weekend.
Maine 26, Delaware 3
It might have been the final appearance in the Top 25 for the Blue Hens for a while as they were thoroughly dominated at home by Maine. Maine held Delaware scoreless for the final 3 1/2 quarters. Marcus Wasilewski threw for 149 yards and 3 scores for Maine.
James Madison 13, Towson 10
No. 5 James Madison got a 9-yard run from redshirt junior quarterback Justin Thorpe with 1:24 left in the game to earn a 13-10 win over Towson on Saturday afternoon. Thorpe led the Dukes on a 79-yard game winning drive to complete the comeback victory that gave JMU coach Mickey Matthews his 100th career win.
New Hampshire 44, Georgia State 21
Andy Vailas threw 4 touchdown passes and head coach Sean McDonnell secured his 100th career victory as UNH dispatched whipping boys Georgia State at the Georgia Dome. Nico Steriti found the end zone 3 times for the Wildcats, who will host Richmond next weekend in a key CAA battle.
William & Mary 34, Penn 28
The William and Mary football team earned its second consecutive victory with a 34-28 triumph at Penn on Saturday afternoon at Franklin Field. Things weren't easy for the Tribe though as they let a 17-point lead melt away and had to stop Penn in the waning moments to hold on for the victory.
Brown 17, Rhode Island 7
Rhody put out their best performance of the season but it wasn't enough to secure their first win of the season as they lost the Governor's Cup 17-7 to Brown. Brown recorded the first 2 touchdowns of the game before Bob Bentsen ran in a touchdown for Rhody just before halftime. Despite winning the time of possession battle and outgaining Brown, the Rams just didn't have enough firepower.
