Backup quarterbacks at heart of A&T-Richmond playoff matchup

GREENSBORO, North Carolina — Who’s the quarterback?

That’s the legitimate question for both teams when No. 17 N.C. A&T (9-2) plays at No. 12 Richmond (8-3) in the first round of the NCAA Division I Football Championships on Saturday.

Will the Aggies get starter Lamar Raynard back in time?

“No,” Coach Rod Broadway said today. “He’s out.”

Meanwhile, the Spiders lost junior Kyle Lauletta with a season-ending right knee injury in their final game of the regular season, a 34-13 loss at William & Mary.

The loss likely cost Richmond a first-round bye in the 24-team FCS playoffs. And the Spiders were winning 13-6 when Lauletta slid at the end of a scramble with 6:12 left in the first half. He didn’t get up.
