Barry Daly was shown a red card for taking out full-back Aled Thomas in Antworten

(STATS) -- The MEAC-SWAC Challenge has a national spotlight each season, but the season-opening matchup hasnt necessarily lived up to it.So Sundays matchup of SWAC champion Alcorn State at MEAC power Bethune-Cookman has the potential to be the most competitive MEAC-SWAC Challenge in recent years.The MEAC has dominated the series with a 9-2 record, including five straight wins. In the series between the two FCS conferences of historically black colleges, four of the first five matchups were decided by six points or less, but each of the last six has been decided by double digits.Bethune, located in Daytona Beach, Florida, won its two previous appearances in the Challenge (2011 and 12) and has captured at least a share of five of the last six MEAC titles. A year ago, the Wildcats finished 9-2 and were part of a three-way tie for the conference title in coach Terry Sims first season.This year, the Wildcats placed a conference-high 15 selections on the MEAC preseason team. The rushing of quarterback Larry Brihm Jr. and running back Michael Jones trigger their offense, while safety Diquan Richardson fuels the defense.Number one, we have to go out offensively and protect the football, Sims said. And defensively we have to make sure that were running to the ball and securing tackles. And I think limiting our mistakes will help us be successful on Sunday.Alcorn has undergone a coaching change after winning two straight SWAC championship games, with assistant Fred McNair succeeding Jay Hopson, who left for Southern Miss. The Braves should have a potent offense behind quarterback Lenorris Footman and all-purpose threat Marquis Warford, but their defense, now anchored by defensive end Stacey Garner, helped set the Braves apart last season.Of course, losing in the inaugural Celebration Bowl last December -- 41-34 to North Carolina A&T of the MEAC -- has motivated Alcorn leading into this years opener.Its always bitter when you lose a tough one like that, McNair said. The way they fought back the second half and just didnt get the (win), but played hard throughout the whole second half. Now well get a chance to play a MEAC school on the front end of things. Theyre kind of looking forward to playing Bethune this coming Sunday. The guys are up for the challenge; they know they left a lot on the table in the Celebration Bowl.Previously played at a neutral site, the MEAC-SWAC Challenge has moved to campus sites for at least the next two seasons. Next years matchup is South Carolina State at Southern. Rashaan Evans Jersey . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. Titans Official Jerseys .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Luke Falk Jersey . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Titans Womens Jerseys .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. The Scarlets made it six league wins in a row thanks to a bonus-point triumph over leaders Leinster in an entertaining Guinness PRO12 encounter in Llanelli.The Scarlets, aided by the 41st-minute sending off of Leinster wing Barry Daly, surged into a 35-8 lead midway through the second half, but to their credit the Irish province battled back with 14 men to snatch a losing bonus point.The hosts ran in five tries to their opponents four, with Rhys Patchell converting all of them.New Zealander Johnny McNicholl made a dream start to his Scarlets debut, the former Crusaders Super Rugby wing crossing for the matchs opening try after only eight minutes.It was a typical poachers effort as he snaffled a pass that hooker Richard Strauss had juggled before racing 40 metres unopposed to the whitewash.Strauss had an immediate chance to make amends, but again his hands let him down, dropping a pass with the line at his mercy.The Scarlets doubled their advantage when Leinster lost second row Mike McCarthy to the sin-bin after a series of infringements, with the home pack rumbling over from a close-range line-out. South African prop Werner Kruger was awarded the score.Skipper Isa Nacewa landed a close-range penalty to get the visitors on the scoreboard, but the Scarlets had their third try on 31 minutes when wing Steffan Evans showed good strength to squeeze over.dddddddddddd.Steffan Evans could have had another, but spilled a pass with the line in front of him after a great break from scrum-half Jonathan Evans.Instead it was Leinster who had the final word of the half when Strauss this time hung on to a pass after a slick attack that sliced open the home defence to reduce the deficit to 21-8 at the break.But any thoughts of a Leinster comeback evaporated 30 seconds after the restart when Barry Daly was shown a red card for taking out full-back Aled Thomas in mid-air.It led to the home side claiming their fourth try, with man of the match Will Boyde finishing off in the corner after the lively Steffan Evans had twice cut open Leinsters defence.Hooker Ryan Elias ploughed over for the Scarlets fifth try to take his side out of sight, but Leinster were in no mood to throw in the towel.Wing Adam Byrne sliced through for their second try, then replacement Tom Daly dived over for another to put some uneasiness into the home ranks.A Dan Jones penalty settled any Scarlets nerves, but Leinster gained reward for their fightback by snatching a late bonus point when replacement Andrew Porter crossed in the final move of the match.
