His Wildcats won their first-ever meeting with Northeast Conference co-champion Saint Francis (7-5) after rolling to a 31-7 halftime lead.I think in order to win in the playoffs, Talley said, you have to run the football and mix in a little bit of the passing game. Most importantly, you need to play defense. I think we are well-suited right now with a great defense and a pretty good offense.Villanova sacked Red Flash quarterback Zack Drayer six times, including 2 1/2 by defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon, the CAA Football defensive player of the year.The quicker the Wildcats got Saint Francis offense off the field, the more the ball was in the hands of Bednarczyk and their many running backs.

WINNIPEG -- Theres still plenty of entertainment value left in UFC 161 despite the loss of a co-main event, UFC Canada director Tom Wright said Tuesday. The latest hit to the June 15 card is the fight featuring former light-heavyweight champion Mauricio (Shogun) Rua. Rua was left without an opponent when fellow Brazilian Antonio Rogerio Nogueira withdrew due to injury. There were reports Chael Sonnen would step in as a replacement but the UFC announced late Monday the fight was off. "A whole bunch of circumstances probably came into play," said Wright. "In the end it was felt that the best thing to do was to let perhaps a Chael-Rua fight happen later but we would go with the card that we have in place." The UFC said Rua will fight later this summer. Wright couldnt comment on reports work-visa issues may have prevented Sonnen from coming. The initial main event between interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland on UFC 161 was lost weeks ago when Barao injured his foot. Wright says the card still features two former Ultimate Fighter champions, a former Pride champion and the cuurrent main event between former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson. NFL Jerseys China. "Injuries are part of any sport and theyre certainly part of this sport," Wright said when asked if the diminished card might damage the brand in Canada following a similar problem in Calgary at UFC 149 last year. "I have every confidence that these guys, everybody on the card . . including the seven Canadians, will put on a great show and Winnipeg, Manitoba, will not be disappointed." UFC 161 will feature 11 fights and the bout between Canadian light-heavyweight Ryan (Big Deal) Jimmo and Igor (The Duke) Pokrajac has been moved to the main card. Injuries have also forced Isaac Vallie-Flagg and T.J. Waldburger off the card. Henderson is making a return visit to Winnipeg but his last was in January and he says he didnt get out much. Wright also highlighted the first-ever womens fight in Canada featuring Rosi Sexton and Alexis Davis. "I think both of these athletes know theyre making some history," he said. "Thats the one that Im really interested in watching." Wholesale Nike NFL JerseysChina NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL JerseysChina Womens NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '
