(STATS) -- Villanova just may keep extending coach Andy Talleys final season if it plays like it did Saturday in defeating visiting Saint Francis 31-21 in the first round of the FCS playoffs.Quarterback Zach Bednarczyk passed for 254 yards and three touchdowns and the Wildcats defense was in control of a Red Flash squad making its first-ever playoff appearance.Villanova (9-3) will play at No. 8 seed South Dakota State (8-3) in the second round next Saturday.The 73-year-old Talley, who led Villanova to the 2009 national title, is in his 32nd and final season with the CAA Football program. His Wildcats won their first-ever meeting with Northeast Conference co-champion Saint Francis (7-5) after rolling to a 31-7 halftime lead.I think in order to win in the playoffs, Talley said, you have to run the football and mix in a little bit of the passing game. Most importantly, you need to play defense. I think we are well-suited right now with a great defense and a pretty good offense.Villanova sacked Red Flash quarterback Zack Drayer six times, including 2 1/2 by defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon, the CAA Football defensive player of the year.The quicker the Wildcats got Saint Francis offense off the field, the more the ball was in the hands of Bednarczyk and their many running backs. They controlled the ball for 37 minutes, 35 seconds, with Matt Gudzaks 62 rushing yards leading their decisive 241-30 advantage on the ground.After Saint Francis closed within 10-7 on Zack Drayers 74-yard touchdown pass to Kamron Lewis with 1:18 remaining in the first quarter, Bednarczyk responded with a 59-yard scoring pass to tight end Ryan Bell before the quarter ended.The left-handed sophomore, who completed 18 of 27 passes, added two touchdown passes in the second quarter -- a 53-yarder to wide receiver Jarrett McClenton and a 2-yarder to Bell, who finished with five receptions for a career-high 110 yards.Saint Francis scored twice in the fourth, with Jalen Wells returning a Bednarczyk interception for a TD in the first minute and Drayer on a 1-yard run in the final minute. Lewis, who entered the game as the FCS leader in receiving yards, caught six passes for 129 yards to push his season total to 1,478.

Auburn later used a 3-0 run to go up 21-16 before a kill and a block by Kaitlyn Blake put A&M within 21-18. The Tigers then went on another 3-0 spurt, including a fifth ace that put Auburn serving for the set, 24-18.

A service error ended the run but McGee immediately put down her fifth kill in five attempts in the set to ignite a set-ending 6-0 run.

The 64-team field will be announced Sunday, Nov. 27, at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.Texas A&M postmatch quotes:TEXAS A&M HEAD COACH LAURIE CORBELLI:On overcoming the slow start to get the victory... I am really relieved that this match is over. It was really a struggle most of the way through. I thought we started really flat. Emotionally it seemed really hard to get really excited and super high for this one, for whatever reason. I was really proud of our attackers. I thought Kiara McGee came ready to play in a really strong fashion. [Ashlie] Reasor did some awesome things, and she just needed a match like this to get her confidence up and let her see herself as the great player she is. As always, I think Steph Aiple directed the offense beautifully, and Jazz Babers with no errors, and with all the blocks that we had. Our blocking is only getting better and better, and that is really a highlight for me. At the end of the season thats what we really like to have happening.On Babers setting another blocking record... She is definitely going to be hard to match in terms of blocking with any future players because of how instinctive she is with her blocking. She is a very smart blocker. We will really miss that next season. She is much deserving of that career record.On thoughts finishing the regular season and awaiting the NCAA announcement... I feel a sense of relief that we have made it through the SEC grind, and we have a day off to rest and rejuvenate and get a new start on somewhat of a new season with the NCAA tournament. I have no clue what the NCAA Selection Committee is going to do. We always have our feelings about it, but I just prefer and wait and not even think about it until we see it.
