Week One CAA Scores

It turns out that Villanova wasn't the only CAA team that had a tough time stepping up against a team that had 22 more scholarships. In all, only one CAA team was able to beat an FBS team when Richmond squeaked out a tight win over Duke. At the same time, every team in the conference that was supposed to win, did win.

Thursday Scores:
Temple 42 Villanova 7
Toledo 58 UNH 22
UMass 24 Holy Cross 16

Saturday:
UNC 42 JMU 10
Navy 40 Delaware 17
Maine 28 Bryant 13
Virginia 40 William & Mary 3
ODU 41 Campbell 14
Towson 42 Morgan St. 3
Richmond 23 Duke 21

So with the exception of an upset against a historically futile FBS team, the CAA teams got smoked when they stepped up. Towson was able to explode for 42 points against Morgan State, something that should give Villanova fans a reason to respect The Tigers.  I think if anything, this week's results show that the gap is widening between teams with 85 scholarships and teams with 63 as only two FCS teams prevailed over FBS opponents.

Don't forget, the Andy Talley Radio Show starts tomorrow night at 8 PM on 950 AM.
