(STATS) -- Going up against some of the worst defenses the FCS has to offer while playing in the wide-open Big Sky, Weber State wasnt exactly an offensive dynamo. Cheap Adidas Superstar Black .In its first playoff appearance in seven years, its facing one of the divisions top defenses.A week after putting a bit of a scare in the top team in the FBS, No. 11 Chattanooga looks to frustrate the 25th-ranked Wildcats when they meet for the first time Saturday at the Mocs Finley Stadium.The Mocs are appearing in the FCS playoffs for the third straight year, and last week they looked like they belonged in the FBS College Football Playoff -- at least for one quarter.Facing Alabama at Tuscaloosa, Chattanooga (8-3) put up a fight against the FBS unanimous No. 1, leading 3-0 after 15 minutes. It trailed 14-3 at the half and was still only down 11 until the Crimson Tide began to pull away late in the third quarter to hand the Mocs a 31-3 loss.Although the score ended up being lopsided, Chattanooga didnt make things easy on the defending CFP champions. The Mocs sacked Jalen Hurts three times to match No. 22 Texas A&M for the most sacks on the Tide QB this season while limiting Nick Sabans team to 332 yards -- Alabamas second-lowest output of the season.Despite the loss, Chattanooga is brimming with confidence heading into the playoffs.It can definitely boost our confidence, playing guys like that, junior quarterback Alejandro Bennifield said. Usually, you come in and you do not think youre going to do too well, but once we started going, guys got a lot of confidence. Now we know we can play with them. We can play with anybody.It certainly appears like they can play with Weber State (7-4), which entered Sundays rankings for the first time since 2010 to round out the STATS FCS Top 25.The Wildcats ranked in the bottom half of the Big Sky in total offense and were 10th in scoring (27.1 points per game) despite playing in a conference that had four of the 10 worst defenses in the FCS and seven of the bottom 23.Treshawn Garrett had a team-high 517 rushing yards but totaled just 120 and averaged 2.9 per carry over the final six games. Senior Haini Moimoi had a career-high 101 yards running in last weeks 34-28 comeback win at Idaho State while the offense put up a season-best 544 yards against the FCS fourth-worst defense.Weber State is in the playoffs for the first time since 2009, going 6-2 in the Big Sky to finish behind undefeated co-champions Eastern Washington and North Dakota.Were really excited to make the playoffs and have our season continue, coach Jay Hill said. This team, especially the group of seniors, deserves this opportunity so we are excited to go play Chattanooga. We felt we deserved to get in the playoffs by finishing third in the Big Sky and weve accomplished a lot this season and glad to keep playing.Theyre going up against a Mocs team that was sixth in the FCS in total defense at 281.8 yards per game and ninth in scoring defense at 18.2. Chattanooga has the best pass defense in the FCS, surrendering an average of 139 yards, and limited the Tide to just 136 through the air.Lineman Keionta Davis is on the STATS Defensive Player of the Year Watch List and was named the Southern Conferences Defensive Player of the Year. He led the league with 8 1/2 sacks.All of this will present problems for Jadrian Clark, who was second in the Big Sky with 2,823 passing yards but also was tied for the league worst with 12 interceptions. Nine of his picks came in six road games, with Weber State going 3-3.The Mocs outscored opponents 251-101 in going 5-1 at home this season and have won 15 of 16 at Finley Stadium.They were 6-2 in league games to tie with Wofford for second place in the Southern Conference and were first in conference games in scoring at 32.6 points and second in total offense at 416 yards.Bennifield has thrown for 2,173 yards with 23 touchdowns to seven interceptions and is seventh in the FCS with a 158.9 passer rating.Derrick Craine, who is on the STATS Offensive Player of the Year Watch List, was fourth in the Southern Conference in rushing with 808 yards and his average of 6 yards per carry ranked second among those with at least 100 attempts.Hell go up against a Weber State defense that allowed an average of 192.1 rushing yards per game. Like the Mocs, the Wildcats are strong against the pass, allowing a Big Sky-low 197.1 pass yards per game.Our offensive coaches have been very impressed with them, Chattanooga coach Russ Huesman said of Weber States defense. I think they have pretty good team speed on defense. Theyre comparable; they kind of look like us. Theyre very comparable and were very comparable to them.The winner moves on to play fifth-seeded Sam Houston State. Adidas Superstar Slip On Outlet .

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Lynx have been in this position before. Its not ideal, but the defending WNBA champions have overcome the same predicament in the past.Down 1-0 in the WNBA Finals, the Lynx find themselves with work to do against the Los Angeles Sparks following L.A.s 78-76 victory in Sundays Game 1.En route to the 2015 WNBA title, Minnesota fell in the first game against the Indiana Fever before eventually rallying to win the championship in five games.We were in this position last year, said Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen, who had 18 points in Sundays loss. You regroup, you see what you can do to recover and get back for Tuesday night. We have been a group thats been together for a long time and been a part of a lot of these, so that will be our focus.Los Angeles defense was a big reason the Sparks emerged victorious in Game 1. Brian Aglers team forced 16 Minnesota turnovers and converted those into 18 points at the other end.Its unlikely that the Sparks will hold Lynx leading scorer Maya Moore scoreless in the first half Tuesday like they did Sunday, but another stout defensive effort against Moore and Co. certainly will be key for taking a 2-0 series lead.We respect her, and we respect that whole team, but we really respect what she can do, Agler said of Moore, who finished Sundays game with 18 points. Its not like we dont think thats going to happen. We know its going to happenn. Cheap Adidas Shoes China. Los Angeles is in search of its first WNBA title since 2002. The current core of players is not as battle tested in the Finals like Minnesota. The Lynx are winners of three of the last five WNBA championships and are trying to become just the second franchise to win four titles.In recent years, its been the Lynx knocking the Sparks out of the Western Conference playoffs on their way to the Finals. With the new change to the WNBAs playoffs that seeds teams regardless of conference, Minnesota and Los Angeles have the opportunity to square off in the Finals.For Sparks star Candace Parker, that means her first Finals comes against the defending champs.Were used to kind of meeting them before the finals, so it had a feel like before, Parker said. I think in general at first obviously theres some nerves, but you kind of get lost in the game and just trying to execute.That quest for a fourth ring has already gotten off to a bumpy start for Minnesota after losing at the buzzer on Sunday. Los Angeles hopes to keep that momentum going.Moving forward to Tuesday, we have to make sure we keep our same focus and same energy out there on the floor because we know theyre a hungry team, Agler said. Theyre trying to make history, and theyre going to come after it. ' ' '
