Northeastern 34, Villanova 30

BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) -- Shawn Brady completed 17 of 24 passes
for 299 yards and four touchdowns to lead Northeastern past
Villanova, 34-30, Saturday in an Atlantic 10 game.

The game between Northeastern (3-2, 2-1) and Villanova (3-3,
0-3) came down to the final seconds. Villanova had a fourth and
three on the Northeastern 22-yard-line, but a Villanova pass was
knocked down by Jamil Young of the Huskies.

Northeastern wide receiver Corey Parks had eight catches for 164
yards and three touchdowns.

Villanova's Marvin Burroughs connected on 31 of 41 attempts for
350 yards and two touchdowns.

Northeastern led, 18-17, at the half and widened that lead to
27-17 in the third period. But Villanova cut the lead to 27-23 at
the beginning of the fourth when J.J. Outlaw capped a 10-play,
80-yard drive with a scoring run from the six.

Burroughs stunned the crowd when he threw a 54-yard scoring pass
to Outlaw, putting Villanova up, 30-27. But Northeastern gained the
winning edge as Brady tossed a nine-yard scoring pass to Shawn
Giles.
