VILLANOVA trailed by 10 in the third quarter of its opener at Syracuse. The Wildcats would lose in double overtime, but not before they drove 59 yards in 13 plays at the end of regulation, only to miss a 25-yard field goal from straightaway. Two games later, they trailed by 10 at home against James Madison, which has made the playoffs. They won by 18. In mid-October, they had to go 69 yards in seven plays to score a winning touchdown with 52 seconds left at William & Mary, which was ranked at the time.

The guy playing quarterback for Villanova on Saturday afternoon wore a black ski mask under his helmet. And as he scrambled into the end zone to briefly give the Wildcats a late lead, you had to look up the sideline to confirm it actually was backup Chris Polony out there and not John Robertson in disguise. Robertson stood off to the side in street clothes, with a headset on. Villanova's star quarterback, and the favorite for the Walter Payton Award, was scratched before the game with a concussion.

Baylor coach Scott Drew's postgame locker-room chat with his team dragged on longer than usual before he emerged - behind schedule - to discuss as big a victory as many Bears fans can remember. "Sorry I'm late. We haven't won a tournament game in a long time," Drew said. "I know there are happy players in there. " It had been six decades since Baylor last won an NCAA Tournament game, but Ekpe Udoh did everything the Bears needed to stave off upset-minded Sam Houston State and end the drought.

WE'LL NEVER know what might have happened, had Villanova's John Robertson been able to play in Saturday's FCS quarterfinal against visiting Sam Houston State. The redshirt junior quarterback - who already is the program's all-time leader in total offense and tonight has a very good chance of winning the Walter Payton Award as the top player at the FCS level - was a late scratch due to a concussion suffered late in last week's second-round home win over Liberty. Senior Chris Polony - who actually beat out Robertson for the job in both 2011 and '12 - got his first start in 2 years and played about as well as he could.

There was a time not too long ago when waking up foggy and dizzy, even with a pounding headache, even on game day, didn't mean you couldn't play a football game. Maybe before concussion awareness was heightened, John Robertson wouldn't have known exactly what was happening inside his head, or he would have thought he needed to play anyway. Instead, Villanova's star quarterback stood on the sideline Saturday for an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinal against Sam Houston State.

THIS WAS supposed to be more of a rebuilding kind of season at Sam Houston State. Someone forgot to tell first-year coach K.C. Keeler, the transplanted Yankee who succeeded Willie Fritz after he moved on to FBS newcomer Georgia Southern. Keeler still thought the Bearkats could do something, even after they lost three of their first four. That's the way he's wired. And DNA doesn't change. "I'm a competitor," Keeler said, emphatically. "Right now, our kids don't think they can lose.

THE STORY LINE for Villanova's journey in the FCS playoffs just got a bit juicier. Or maybe even a bunch. The Wildcats (11-2) had to come from behind to beat visiting Liberty (9-5) in the rain in Saturday's second-round, 29-22. Next up in this weekend's quarterfinals is Sam Houston State (10-4), which won at Jacksonville State (10-2), 37-26. If nothing else the 'Cats don't have to fly to Alabama, which is what would have happened had Jacksonville advanced. But Sam Houston is coached by a familiar face in K.C. Keeler, who got to five Division III title games with Rowan in the 1990s and three more FCS finals with Delaware in the first decade of this century (the Blue Hens won in 2003)

IT'S FINALLY here. Alabama at Texas A&M, the rematch. The defending national champions, who haven't lost a road game since November 2010, going to College Station to take on Johnny Football, the first freshman to win a Heisman Trophy, who basically won it by beating the Crimson Tide, 29-24, last November in Tuscaloosa. About the only thing missing is prime time. This one's at 3:30 p.m. on CBS, which feels like some kind of oversight. The Tide, of course, is trying to win a ring for the fourth time in 5 years, and third straight.
