Navy 51 – Delaware 7
CAA football teams have fared pretty well against FBS opponents so far this season, but this game was not one of those times. The Navy Midshipmen absolutely torched the Fightin’ Blue Hens in Annapolis, handing Delaware their first loss of the season. Blue Hens’ receiver Ryan Cobb accounted for the only Delaware touchdown, hauling in a 17-yard pass from quarterback Trent Hurley.
New Hampshire 53 – Colgate 23
The Wildcats picked up their first win of the season over Colgate, jumping out to a 26-6 first quarter lead and never looked back. Junior running back Nico Steriti led the way for UNH, racking up 88 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
Maine 35 – Bryant 22
If you have yet to hear the name Marcus Wasilewski, now’s as good a time as any to learn it. The Black Bears quarterback accounted for all five Maine touchdowns – throwing for four of them and rushing for the other. The Black Bears are now 3-0 for the first time since 2002.
Buffalo 26 – Stony Brook 23 (5OT)
“Pushing an FBS team to the brink” would be an understatement. The Seawolves came up just short in an absolute slugfest against the Bulls, despite tying the game with 29 seconds to play in regulation. Stony Brook wide receiver Malcolm Eugene tallied 110 yards receiving and two touchdowns in the loss.
James Madison 24 – St. Francis (PA) 20
The Dukes barely escaped with a win against a not-very-good St. Francis team, squeaking out a 24-20 win against the Red Flash. Running back Dae’Quan Scott netted 190 yards and two touchdowns on the ground as JMU battled back from an 14-3 first half deficit.
William & Mary 34 – Lafayette 6
Rhody’s upcoming opponent looked damn good on Saturday, gaining 245 yards on the ground en route to a blowout of the Lafayette Leopards. Mikal Abdul-Saboor racked up 103 of the Tribe’s 245 rushing yards, tallying two touchdowns in the process.
Gardner-Webb 12 – Richmond 10
We’ve said many times in this space that Richmond’s defense is nothing short of spectacular, and it seems the only way to beat them is in a low-scoring rock fight. And that’s exactly what the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs did, topping the Spiders without the benefit of a touchdown. Four Jordan Day field goals, including one with 25 seconds left in regulation, were the difference in this one.
Towson 49 – Delaware State 7
If you thought Towson would be the best team in the CAA this season, pat yourself on the back now. The Tigers improved to 3-0 on the year with their blowout of the Hornets, looking very strong in the process. Terrance West rushed for FIVE touchdowns in this one, giving him a total of nine over the first three games.
