(STATS) -- Playing in its first-ever FCS playoff game Saturday, North Dakota might have gotten ahead of itself when it held a 17-point lead on Richmond late in the third quarter. Scarpe Under Armour Basket .Surely, Richmonds playoff experience was reflected in its composure.The Spiders scored the final 20 points, capped by Griffin Traus 18-yard field goal as time expired, and the CAA Football squad stunned the No. 7-seeded Fighting Hawks 27-24 in a second-round game at Alerus Center in Grand Forks.Richmond (10-3) will head across the country once again next Saturday to face a second straight Big Sky Conference co-champion, No. 2 seed Eastern Washington (11-1), in the quarterfinals.I cant be more proud of this football team, Richmond coach Danny Rocco said. :The toughness they put on display tonight was phenomenal. I cant say enough about them.The Spiders are appearing in the playoffs for the third straight season under coach Rocco and the 12th time overall. They faced a desperate situation after Keaton Studsruds two touchdown passes to Demun Mercer helped North Dakota to a 24-7 lead.But Spiders quarterback Kevin Johnson scored on a 9-yard run with 23 seconds left in the third quarter as they began to chip away.Trau kicked a 37-yard field goal with 10:25 left in the fourth quarter, closing the deficit to 24-17. Johnson then connected with Garrett Hudson for an 8-yard touchdown to tie the game at the 5:24 mark.But Johnsons biggest pass came on the games final drive. The sophomore stepped up from pressure in the pocket to throw a 54-yard bomb that Tyler Wilkins caught as he fell onto his back at the UND 20 inside two minutes. The Spiders ran the ball three more times before Trau kicked his FCS-leading 23rd field goal of the season.Johnson, making his second career start since standout Kyle Lauletta became the eighth Richmond starter to be lost to a season-ending injury, had 282 yards of total offense and three total touchdowns (two passing, one rushing).Senior wide receiver Brian Brown caught six passes for 171 yards and a touchdown. He went over 4,000 career receiving yards, pushing the total to 4,135.While North Dakota made its first appearance in the FCS playoffs, it has a long history of Division II postseason experience, including a national championship season in 2001 and a runner-up finish two years later. The Fighting Hawks saw their nine-game winning streak end. Under Armour Curry 2 Italia .

The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Even though Virginia Tech in the midst of a conference championship race, Notre Dame with its losing record has more at stake when they face the Hokies for the first time.The Fighting Irish (4-6) need to win their final two games to become bowl eligible and avoid becoming just the 14th team in 128 years of Notre Dame football to post a losing record. For Virginia Tech (7-3), the game has no bearing on its bid to win the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division.Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer said avoiding the stigma of a losing season is a motivating factor in the final two games against the Hokies and USC.Six and six is a big feat to get to rather than being 5-7. We want to be a team who continues on a winning tradition at Notre Dame, he said.Coach Brian Kelly believes Notre Dames 44-6 victory over Army last week was its most complete game this season. He wants to see the Irish build on that.I want to make sure that how we play is going to be reflective of where we finish and how we build that for next year, he said.The Hokies are coming off a disappointing 30-20 loss to Georgia Tech, so now must beat rival Virginia to clinch the division title. Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said the focus this week is on continuing to improve.This is an ongoing process and its not always a straight ascension. This is a great opportunity and comes at a good time for us to go on the road and play a very talented team in what Im sure will be a hostile environment, he said.Other things to know about the Virginia Tech-Notre Dame game:NOT AN OPTIONThe defenses for both teams are happy to be returning to playing against more traditional offenses after facing triple option opponents. The Hokies played Georgia Tech, while the Irish faced Navy and Army in cconsecutive weeks. Curry 3 Scarpe. Its like a monkey off your back, Notre Dame linebacker Nyles Morgan said. Its back to basics.BALL SECURITYIt has been an issue in all of the Hokies losses. Jerod Evans threw two interceptions in last weeks loss to Georgia Tech, doubling his total for the season, and also fumbled. He still ranks fifth among all Power Five conference quarterbacks in efficiency, and the Hokies are tough to beat when they take care of the ball. Notre Dames loss to Navy two weeks ago marked just the second time under Kelly that the Irish lost when not committing a turnover.NO STREAKSIf Notre Dame fails to win Saturday it would mark the first season without consecutive victories since 1960. The Hokies are trying to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since losing to Miami and to Duke in four overtimes in October 2015.DEFENSIVE SETBACKVirginia Tech allowed the Yellow Jackets to rush for 309 yards last week, but they have been stronger against the run in other games, allowing 144 yards on average. Thats 40th nationally. They rank 14th against the pass, allowing 185 passing yards per game.POOR RATINGSThe Army-Notre Dame game last week was the lowest-rated game in 26 seasons of NBC broadcasting Fighting Irish football games.
