CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Alex Petrovic Jersey . -- Kyle Lauletta and Richmond believed they had a legitimate shot in their game against Virginia, even though the Spiders play in the Football Championship Subdivision and the Cavaliers are in one of the Power Five conference.But even Lauletta never expected the Spiders to dominate.They did Saturday as the senior threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, the defense held Virginia to negative rushing yards heading into the fourth quarter and the Spiders rolled to a 37-20 victory, spoiling Bronco Mendenhalls debut at Virginia.When we can run and pass like that, were tough to beat, the redshirt junior said.The Spiders outgained Virginia 524-302 in winning for just the third time in 33 meetings in the series. The victory was the fourth in Richmonds last nine meetings with an FBS-level school, but its first victory against the Cavaliers since 1946.Lauletta, the preseason offensive player of the year in the Colonial Athletic Association, teamed up with Tyler Wilkins for scoring throws of 11 and 5 yards, and hit Brian Brown for 11 yards. He also sidestepped Virginias pressure on several occasions.We responded extremely well to adversity and we answered, really, every time we had to answer throughout the course of the game, said Spiders coach Danny Rocco, whose team reached the FCS semifinals last season. Our team expected to win.The Cavaliers, on the other hand, gave Mendenhall and his staff their first glimpse at the rebuilding job that lies ahead.The clarity is the excitement and optimism and hope is what Ive been mentioning and eventually I said the execution would catch up, Mendenhall said. That part is further behind than I thought. ... Im surprised. I learned a lot today.The coach, who won 99 games in 11 seasons at BYU before replacing Mike London last December, also felt like he got a glimpse of the past for Virginia, which hasnt made it to a bowl game since 2011. Mendenhalls team went to one every year.I think they want to be resilient and I think they want to believe and have new habits but there is some history here and there was some reversion to that today, he said. My job is to help them build great habits.Kurt Benkert threw for three touchdowns in his first start at Virginia, but two came in the final quarter after Richmond had taken a 30-7 lead. Benkert also threw an interception deep in Spiders territory, one of turnovers for the Cavaliers.Its just a little bit of a road bump and its going to set up a great story, Benkert said.TAKEAWAYSRICHMOND: The Spiders, 33-7 losers to North Dakota State in the FCS semifinals last year, have to be considered favorites to get back. The offensive line had little trouble handling Virginia up front and Lauletta makes good decisions, can make all the throws and extend plays with his feet. Staying healthy will be critical.VIRGINIA: The defense struggled mightily in its first game in Mendenhalls 3-4 alignment. There were numerous missed assignments and missed tackles galore. The Spiders moved the ball at will at times, and Lauletta was hardly ever bothered by pressure. What little he faced, he usually sidestepped it pretty easily.BAD STARTRichmond scored twice before the Cavaliers ever ran an offensive play from scrimmage. The Spiders drove 64 yards in eight plays after the opening kickoff to a 28-yard field goal by Griffin Trau. On the ensuing kickoff, Connor Wingo-Reeves was stripped of the ball and Jevaris Little recovered for the Spiders at the 36. Six plays later, Trau connected from 25 yards and it was 6-0.Virginia turned it over against on the next drive after marching inside the Richmond 10. Taquan Mizzell was stripped on a run into the line by Brendan Coniker, who also recovered, and the Spiders then drove 95 yards in 10 plays to Wilkins first TD catch.Ricky Segers later boomed a 50-yard field goal for the Spiders.UP NEXTRICHMOND: The Spiders open their home schedule against Norfolk State.VIRGINA: The Cavaliers travel across the country to face No. 24 Oregon, finishing a home-and-home series that started with the Ducks winning 59-10 at Virginia in 2013. Derek MacKenzie Jersey . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. Nick Bjugstad Jersey .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. http:///...ley-panthers-jersey/ . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Miles Bridges missed a free throw, got to the loose ball, dribbled through the lane and leaped to make a backboard-shaking dunk that got Magic Johnson out of his seat.Bridges scored 21 of his 24 points in the first half, grabbed 11 rebounds and had six assists in his home debut for No. 13 Michigan State in an 100-53 win over Mississippi Valley State on Friday night.That first-half performance was as good as any as Ive seen here in a long time, Spartans coach Tom Izzo said.Bridges , a 6-foot-7 freshman, put on quite a show that the fans loved at the Breslin Center, including a former Michigan State great and Hall of Famer. He made an array of shots, including a jump hook and two 3-pointers.Johnson popped out of his seat in a suite and spread his arms wide while showing an ear-to-ear smile when the left-handed freshman soared and slammed with his off hand.That was amazing, Johnson said in a halftime interview with The Associated Press. He is a guy, not only will he thrill Michigan State fans and basketball fans around the country, but the next level, hell be a great player.Bridges was awed by meeting Johnson for the first time and getting praise from him during a brief postgame chat.For him to be that excited about the way I played, for a legend to say that, that means a lot, he said.Bridges helped the Spartans (1-2) get a confidence-boosting win after getting routed by No. 2 Kentucky and losing to No. 10 Arizona by two points, but Izzo kept the rout in perspective.We took a step in the first direction, Izzo said. We did not conquer Rome or anything.Nick Ward, one of Michigan States four highly touted freshmen, had 18 points on 8-of-8 shooting and eight rebounds.Reserve Ronald Strother had 12 points and Amos Given scored 10 for the Delta Devils (0-4) who could not slow down Bridges until he decided to set up teammates for more shots in the second half.He actually played about tthree years older than what he actually is because he smelled that fear and went into attack mode, MVSU coach Andre Payne said. Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey. .BIG PICTUREMVSU: The overmatched Delta Devils can learn from and build off of the solid start they had against the Spartans, who were leading just 16-14 midway through the first half.With about 7 minutes to go in the first half, they decided to do it their way instead of following the game plan, Payne said. On the road against a high-major team like Michigan State, they make you play.The Spartans closed the first half with 32-9 run and scored 84 points in the last 9:20 of the game.Michigan State: Eron Harris and Matt McQuaid have to play like they did against MVSU for the Spartans to have a lot of success this season because they cant rely on just freshmen. Harris had 19 points and McQuaid scored 15. Both were 5 of 8 on 3-pointers.Eron and Quaido (McQuaid) were in a slump, Bridges said. My job was to get them going. Thats where this game could be important.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Spartans might make voters pause before dropping them down too much following a 19-point loss and a 47-point win with one game left before the next poll.CAUSE FOR CONCERNMichigan State freshman Joshua Langford was limited to three points in 12 minutes, playing through hamstring ailment in his left leg.Josh is dragging that leg, Izzo said. Thats a problem right now.UP NEXTMVSU: The Delta Devils play Massachusetts-Lowell on Tuesday in Virginia.Michigan State: The Spartans host Florida Gulf Coast, which won 21 games last season and played in the NCAA tournament, on Sunday night before going to the Bahamas, where they will open with St. Johns and may face No. 12 Louisville.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
