CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Daley Blind Jersey . -- Kyle Lauletta and Richmond believed they had a legitimate shot in their game against Virginia, even though the Spiders play in the Football Championship Subdivision and the Cavaliers are in one of the Power Five conference.But even Lauletta never expected the Spiders to dominate.They did Saturday as the senior threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, the defense held Virginia to negative rushing yards heading into the fourth quarter and the Spiders rolled to a 37-20 victory, spoiling Bronco Mendenhalls debut at Virginia.When we can run and pass like that, were tough to beat, the redshirt junior said.The Spiders outgained Virginia 524-302 in winning for just the third time in 33 meetings in the series. The victory was the fourth in Richmonds last nine meetings with an FBS-level school, but its first victory against the Cavaliers since 1946.Lauletta, the preseason offensive player of the year in the Colonial Athletic Association, teamed up with Tyler Wilkins for scoring throws of 11 and 5 yards, and hit Brian Brown for 11 yards. He also sidestepped Virginias pressure on several occasions.We responded extremely well to adversity and we answered, really, every time we had to answer throughout the course of the game, said Spiders coach Danny Rocco, whose team reached the FCS semifinals last season. Our team expected to win.The Cavaliers, on the other hand, gave Mendenhall and his staff their first glimpse at the rebuilding job that lies ahead.The clarity is the excitement and optimism and hope is what Ive been mentioning and eventually I said the execution would catch up, Mendenhall said. That part is further behind than I thought. ... Im surprised. I learned a lot today.The coach, who won 99 games in 11 seasons at BYU before replacing Mike London last December, also felt like he got a glimpse of the past for Virginia, which hasnt made it to a bowl game since 2011. Mendenhalls team went to one every year.I think they want to be resilient and I think they want to believe and have new habits but there is some history here and there was some reversion to that today, he said. My job is to help them build great habits.Kurt Benkert threw for three touchdowns in his first start at Virginia, but two came in the final quarter after Richmond had taken a 30-7 lead. Benkert also threw an interception deep in Spiders territory, one of turnovers for the Cavaliers.Its just a little bit of a road bump and its going to set up a great story, Benkert said.TAKEAWAYSRICHMOND: The Spiders, 33-7 losers to North Dakota State in the FCS semifinals last year, have to be considered favorites to get back. The offensive line had little trouble handling Virginia up front and Lauletta makes good decisions, can make all the throws and extend plays with his feet. Staying healthy will be critical.VIRGINIA: The defense struggled mightily in its first game in Mendenhalls 3-4 alignment. There were numerous missed assignments and missed tackles galore. The Spiders moved the ball at will at times, and Lauletta was hardly ever bothered by pressure. What little he faced, he usually sidestepped it pretty easily.BAD STARTRichmond scored twice before the Cavaliers ever ran an offensive play from scrimmage. The Spiders drove 64 yards in eight plays after the opening kickoff to a 28-yard field goal by Griffin Trau. On the ensuing kickoff, Connor Wingo-Reeves was stripped of the ball and Jevaris Little recovered for the Spiders at the 36. Six plays later, Trau connected from 25 yards and it was 6-0.Virginia turned it over against on the next drive after marching inside the Richmond 10. Taquan Mizzell was stripped on a run into the line by Brendan Coniker, who also recovered, and the Spiders then drove 95 yards in 10 plays to Wilkins first TD catch.Ricky Segers later boomed a 50-yard field goal for the Spiders.UP NEXTRICHMOND: The Spiders open their home schedule against Norfolk State.VIRGINA: The Cavaliers travel across the country to face No. 24 Oregon, finishing a home-and-home series that started with the Ducks winning 59-10 at Virginia in 2013. Michael Carrick Jersey . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. David Beckham Jersey . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. http://www.manunitedfcpro.com/Kids-Luke-Shaw-Jersey/ . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Nigel Johnson launched the ball to the rafters and Corey Sanders ran around the court with his arms raised over his head in jubilation.It was a celebration that could have been mistaken for a team that just caused a major upset. Instead, it was a teams relief from escaping one.C.J. Gettys rebounded Corey Sanders missed layup and scored with six seconds left to give Rutgers the 77-75 win over Hartford on Friday.Corey was just able to split the gap of defenders and get to the rim and I have everyones back. Thats our team motto. I have your back and you have mine, Gettys said. So I was right there for the follow-up and luckily I was able to muster it in.Deshawn Freeman had a career-high 26 points and 10 rebounds for back-to-back double-doubles to help Rutgers escape an upset.When we came out of a huddle and D (Deshawn Freeman) said `I got it, we were down 10 and I felt pretty good. You dont get that often from players. I love when players, especially a player like him with a double-double tonight, says `Coach, we got it. We got it. They did, coach Steve Piekell said. They wanted to give me a heart attack, but they got it. C.J. (Gettys) was great at the end. He was a facilitator. We got him the ball in the middle of the zone and he made the right reads while D was able to finish a lot of plays. So, good leadership and a good team win.Mike Williams hit a 3-pointer with 2:05 left to cut Hartfords once 13-point second-half lead to 73-71 and bring the RAC crowd to its feet.Johnson stole J.R.

This will be a great learning experience. Theres two ways to look at it -- you can go the devastation route, or you can say we can build off of this. Im going to choose to build off of it.BIG PICTURERutgers: Has its first 6-0 start since 1975-1976, when the team began 31-0 en route to the programs lone Final Four appearance.
