No. 10 Villanova will go on the road to face No. 2 Appalachian State, Saturday, Dec. 11 at noon on ESPNHD and ESPN3.

CAA Football continues to Digg! You can see some of the recent news articles we are Digging in the widget down the right margin of the blog. Send us some articles/news links at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find some features we may have missed.
We also encourage you to visit CAA Football Gameday Central Friday evening and Saturday morning at CAASports.com. Each of the league’s quarterfinal games will be featured with links to each contest’s livestat link, video and audio streams and more. As stated above you can come back to the blog on each of the gamedays to find a link directly to this week’s Gameday Central.
Just a heads up on the post-weekend recaps you usually can count on from CAA Football. Due to NCAA rules regarding championship play video we may not have too much in the way of video recaps. If our schools have postgame reaction or any other video highlights we will link to them as best as possible here on the blog and CAASports.com.
To highlight the CAA Football matchup in the quarterfinals, we went back to the video vault to gather up the two previous New Hampshire/Delaware matchups. Yesterday we posted a video recap of the 2006 contest between the two programs at Delaware Stadium. New Hampshire came out on top 52-49…you can watch that below. Later today we will have the 2007 contest in a video recap and plan to post it in a separate blog entry. We will also have both in a single story on CAASports.com. Be sure to go to both places to see that feature.
