Leftovers — Nov. 20 Revisited

Nov 21, 2010, 9:04 AM EDT

What a day for CAA Football yesterday!!!  Our first television game of the day couldn’t have been a better game.  Villanova’s upset of Delaware created a shift at the top of the league race and the national playoff implications.  The Wildcats more than likely played themselves into a chance to defend its 2009 National Championship.  They also gave William and Mary a chance to earn the league’s automatic and a share of the conference title.

The Tribe did not hesitate in taking advantage of Delaware’s loss, beating up on the Spiders in the battle for the Capital Cup.

Have you seen our Top 10 Plays of the Year video yet? Watch it below.  You also still have time to vote on how you think the 10 plays in the video should be ranked.  Use the polling process to the right of the blog page.  Voting will close around 9:45, 15 minutes before ESPNU will carry the 30-minute NCAA Division I Football Championship selection show.

We are assuming CAA Football gets four teams in…what do you think?  Where will our four be playing, who will our four be playing and when will our four be playing?  Hit the comment link below and let us know your pre-selection thoughts.  We will post the bracket release later this morning and will ask for reactions then as well so come back to let us know your thoughts.

Massachusetts logged the following highlights from its loss at Rhode Island.  The Rams played spoiler for the Minutemen, which would have advanced to the playoff with a win in Kingston.  Watch the video below.

New Hampshire earned a win over Towson in it regular-season finale.  The Wildcats will now await to see who, when and where they play in what will now be seven-straight trips to the postseason.  If Montana is left out of the field of 20, the Wildcats will own the nation’s longest current playoff berth streak!  Watch yesterday’s postgame reaction from head coach Sean McDonnell below.

Rhode Island finished its season 5-6 overall, but 4-4 in league play after going winless in the CAA last season.  Head coach Joe Trainer reacts to his team’s win over UMass yesterday below.

Richmond had won the last five matchups in the battle for the Capital Cup, but Saturday William and Mary proved to be too much.  Watch the highlights from the Spiders’ camp below.

The Tribe came out on top in the Capital Cup Saturday, but even more important to William and Mary was its first CAA Football Championship since 2004 and earning the league’s automatic bid.  Head coach Jimmye Laycock and his players react to Saturday’s win over Richmond and look forward to this morning’s selection show.

2010 CAA Football…You Better Be Ready!!!
