FRISCO, Texas - Pat Devlin transferred to Delaware from Penn State in 2009 for two reasons: to get playing time and win a national title. The fifth-year senior quarterback from Downingtown East has to settle for playing time. Eastern Washington defeated Delaware, 20-19, Friday night at Pizza Hut Park for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title. The victory, in front of a crowd of 13,027, gave the Eagles (13-2) their first national title. Junior quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, a Southern Methodist transfer, produced three second-half touchdown passes.

Less than three minutes into St. Joseph's season opener, coach Phil Martelli was inadvertently knocked over by 6-foot-9, 245-pound Jason Humbert of Eastern Washington. Quickly, he got back on his feet, but the Hawks couldn't do the same against the physical, aggressive Eagles. For St. Joseph's, this season of high expectations got off to a miserable start last night as lightly regarded Eastern Washington stunned the 10th-ranked Hawks, 68-67, in the Black Coaches Association Classic at Haas Pavilion on the campus of California-Berkeley.

Standing outside a dressing room on the University of California campus, St. Joseph's guard Na'im Crenshaw thought back to two years ago. That season, the Hawks frequently went into games as underdogs. The low expectations gave them chips on their shoulders and usually brought out the best they had to give. Last season as well, the Hawks thrived as the little school that couldn't, until, by season's end, they proved they were among the more dangerous teams in the country. "We've always been used to being the chasers instead of the chased," said Crenshaw, a 6-foot-5 guard and one of four senior starters for the Hawks.

Eastern Washington's all-American running back Taiwan Jones likely will not play in Friday night's NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision semifinal against visiting Villanova. Jones fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot in the Eagles' 38-31 quarterfinal victory over North Dakota State on Saturday. His expected absence should give the 10th-ranked Wildcats (9-4) a huge advantage, right? Not according to Villanova coach Andy Talley. "I think any team such as Eastern Washington, they have very talented people that are ready to play and help out," Talley said.

Adam Morrison scored 29 points, just above his Division I-leading average, to lead No. 8 Gonzaga to a 75-65 victory over visiting Eastern Washington last night. J.P. Batista added 22 points for the Bulldogs (8-2), who have won four straight games overall and 20 in a row over Eastern Washington since 1990. Freshman Rodney Stuckey had 20 points for the Eagles (4-5), who led by five points in the second half in the game played in Spokane Arena. Morrison, who came in averaging 28.4 points, has scored at least 25 seven times this season.

Norman White admitted that he was extremely nervous before Villanova's football season began. In August, the wideout kept thinking about his increased role in the Wildcats' offense. "I didn't know if I was ready mentally," White said. It turns out that the 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior's concerns were unwarranted. White has been a force for the 10th-ranked Wildcats (9-4), who will face No. 1 Eastern Washington (11-2) in an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision semifinal Friday night at Roos Field in Cheney, Wash.

Villanova quarterback John Robertson is among three finalists for the Walter Payton Award, the Football Championship Subdivision's version of the Heisman Trophy. The winner will be announced at the Sports Network FCS awards banquet Dec. 15 in Philadelphia. A panel of media and college sports information directors will decide the winner. Villanova has had two previous Walter Payton Award winners, wide receiver Brian Finnneran in 1997 and running back Brian Westbrook in 2001. All three of this year's finalists are quarterbacks, including Eastern Washington's Vernon Adams Jr. and Idaho State's Justin Arias.

Shannon Brown scored a career-high 27 points and No. 12 Michigan State rallied to beat Cleveland State, 83-75, last night in East Lansing, Mich. Paul Davis added 24 points, while Maurice Ager had 22 for the Spartans (8-2), who trailed by 46-35 late in the first half and got just 10 points from their other seven players. The balanced Vikings (2-5) hit a school-record 14 three-pointers, including 10 in the first half, and looked nothing like the team that lost by 57 points at North Carolina in November.

Soccer can frustrate the best of teams because of the degree of difficulty in scoring goals. That's not a problem for the Eastern girls' soccer team these days. The Vikings are focused on playing with an "easy mind-set," according to senior striker Rachel Wood. "Our confidence level is very high but not too high," Wood said after scoring the first goal in Eastern's 2-0 victory over Washington Township in the semifinals of the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. Junior Amirah Ali, who assisted on Wood's goal, added her 36th marker of the season as second-seeded Eastern (22-1-1)

ON SATURDAY, the Heisman Trophy ceremony was held in New York. Last night at the Sheraton Society Hill, Hatboro-based The Sports Network handed out the FCS equivalent, named after Jackson State great Walter Payton, at its 27th annual awards dinner. His son Jarrett was there to honor the winner, Eastern Illinois senior quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who finished 130 points ahead of Eastern Washington QB Vernon Adams. The other finalist was Towson running back Terrance West. In 2002, an EIU QB named Tony Romo won this award, narrowly beating out Villanova's Brett Gordon.

Arizona trailed by 21-0 in the first quarter and was down by 45-28 entering the final period.

CHENEY, Wash. - One of the keys to Villanova's two Football Championship Subdivison playoff wins was its plus-six edge in turnover margin. The Wildcats were on the opposite end of that statistic Friday night, and it helped bring their season to a close. Villanova committed six turnovers - four fumbles and two interceptions - that led to 20 Eastern Washington points, and the Eagles went on to a 41-31 victory in the semifinals in front of 6,000 at Roos Field. Top-ranked EWU (12-2)
