UNH 29-Villanova 28: John Robertson and not much else


Today, Villanova saw a transcendent performance from sophomore quarterback John Robertson go to waste, where he led the team to two late fourth quarter touchdowns, the second one coming with only 69 seconds left in the game to put his team up by seven. On its ensuing drive, UNH marched it down the field and scored a touchdown with only 14 seconds left, only to follow it up with a ballsy two point conversion call. And thus, Villanova still has not beaten UNH in Durham since 2003.

For the game, Robertson had 255 rushing yards on 26 carries with three touchdowns, easily the best rushing performance by a Villanova player since the days of Brian Westbrook, as it was the second greatest single game rushing yards output by a Villanova player in program history. Unfortunately for Villanova, the inability of the defense to stop UNH at crucial times was also reminiscent of the Westbrook years.

Not much else was that good, as Robertson had over 300 yards of total offense over the next highest contributor.
