RMU Hall of Famer Brian Cleary's X-Factor for Saturday
The Seniors making Wagner remember them! There are no stat lines to review here or matchup insights. This comes down to the 16 seniors listed on the roster willing their team to victory on Saturday. Saturday is the last day these men will wear the home blue jerseys, get dressed in their locker before a game and walk down through the crowd. There is a time to reflect on your career and look back on the good times, the bad times, the jokes, fun and friendships developed but not on Saturday. You seniors have a chances to show to the younger players what it means to be a Colonial and that your current record does not dictate how you play.

Frosh QB Matt Layman thrown into the fire
"The way he responded, getting into the game, I thought he did great, especially for a freshman," King said. "I know when I got in my first game, I was nervous and I didn't run my route like I was supposed to."

Layman completed his first five passes - including a touchdown pass to Jamie Cobb - and finished 12-of-16 for 163 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Layman said the earlier cameos helped prepare him for the larger load against CCSU.

"It really helps to get playing time to get your confidence. Especially when you have great receivers to throw the ball to and a line to protect you," he said. "You feel really confident throwing the ball to them and stuff like that."

Quotable: Shadrae King on Matt Layman
"He's mobile, but he doesn't have the threat that Jeff has against the defense. He's more of a passer, stay-in-the-pocket, try and find the guy coming across the middle on a broken play," King said. "He's a really good quarterback. I think as time progresses and he gets more experienced, he's going to be really, really good."
