Former longtime Delaware coach K.C. Keeler isn't about to gloat, even though his homecoming is another success story, matching the rest of his coaching career. Keeler's Sam Houston State team (10-4) will visit Villanova (11-2) in Saturday's 1 p.m. Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinal. The winner will play next Friday or Saturday against the winner of the North Dakota State-Coastal Carolina game. Villanova could host that game if Coastal Carolina wins. A Delaware graduate who replaced the legendary coach Tubby Raymond in 2002, Keeler was fired after a 5-6 season in 2012.

IF YOU HAD Villanova winning a game at the Wells Fargo Center this season before the Sixers, you were sharp, if not exactly clairvoyant. If you had Villanova winning on the Sixers' court before the Sixers won on any court, you were at least in the vicinity of clairvoyant because the Sixers played 16 games before the Wildcats played any at their second home. If you had Villanova winning . . . You get the point. Villanova is really good in its environment. The Sixers are history-making bad in theirs.

With all of Villanova's impressive statistics through the first two weeks of the season, the number "28.9 percent" stands out like a rash. That was the Wildcats' mark from three-point range through their first five games. In fact, Delaware coach Monte Ross had his zone defense guard the inside Sunday so Villanova would shoot from deep. But in its Wells Fargo Center regular-season debut, No. 12 Villanova established season highs for made three-pointers (13) and three-point percentage (40.6)

It has become one of the best football rivalries in Football Championship Subdivision and when Villa visits Delaware on Saturday at noon, more than just local bragging rights will be on the line. Villanova is 9-2 with a 6-1 record in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Wildcats are ranked No. 6 in the nation by The Sports Network and in the FCS Coaches' Poll. A win over Delaware (6-5, 4-3) would almost assuredly earn Villanova a coveted bye in the first round of the 24-team FCS playoff field, which will be announced Sunday.

NEWARK, Del. - John Robertson's late-game magic likely earned himself and his Villanova football teammates a week off. Trailing by a point with under two minutes remaining, Robertson marched the Wildcats 68 yards on 10 plays during a drive that included two fourth-down conversions for a dramatic, 35-28 win over Delaware in a Colonial Athletic Association thriller on Saturday at Delaware Stadium. Robertson hit Kevin Gulyas on a 21-yard scoring pass with 23 seconds left and then connected with Poppy Livers on the two-point conversion to complete the comeback.

WHATEVER happens tomorrow at Delaware, Villanova will be in the FCS playoffs. If they win, the Wildcats are going there on their own terms. If not, they'd only be making things a lot more difficult on themselves. In 2009, they got to play three home games en route to the national-title game. They might not have won the semifinal had it been at William & Mary. In 2010, they had to go on the road, where they won twice against the top-ranked team before finally losing a close one at eventual champion Eastern Washington, which was also No. 1. So there is a difference.

TRENTON - A decision is expected Friday on a lawsuit by the NCAA and professional sports leagues to block a New Jersey law that repeals a state ban on sports betting. U.S. District Judge Michael A. Shipp gave his time frame after hearing oral arguments in Trenton. Shipp previously granted a temporary restraining order sought by the leagues, which have accused New Jersey of trying to skirt a federal law that restricts sports betting to certain states. The state, however, points to language in a federal appellate-court decision issued last year that said New Jersey could repeal its ban. During Thursday's oral arguments, lawyers sparred over whether a law signed by Christie in October had simply repealed the state's prohibitions on sports betting or taken steps to authorize the practice.

A dreadful finish doomed what looked like a promising start for Penn. The Quakers went ice cold down the stretch in a 77-75, season-opening overtime defeat to Delaware State on Saturday at the Palestra. Tony Hicks led the Quakers with 31 points. Hicks had a chance to win it in regulation, but his bank shot from the right baseline at the buzzer went off the glass and then off the rim. "It was just a bunny that didn't go in," Hicks said. The Quakers looked in control, up by 62-54 with 6 minutes, 20 seconds left in the second half before an offensive drought, going 1-for-6 from the field with three turnovers in the final 6:20 of regulation.
