White lifts Villanova to 26-21 win over Lehigh

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Javon White ran for 155 yards and two touchdowns, including the winning 2-yarder on fourth down with 4:20 to play, to lift Villanova to a 26-21 win over Lehigh on Saturday night.

White's winning TD, which capped an eight-play, 83-yard drive, was set up by his 47-yard run into Lehigh territory five plays earlier. His 3-yard touchdown run made it 7-0 with 1:46 left in the first quarter.

Villanova (1-1) got touchdowns from Aaron Forbes, who ran in a 20-yarder, and Adeyemi DaSilva. The Wildcats picked up a 2-point conversion from Zack Bednarczyk, but missed two PAT kicks and also missed a 2-point conversion attempt.

Lehigh (0-2) retook the lead in the third quarter on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Nick Shafnisky to Derek Knott but couldn't stop Villanova in the fourth and turned the ball over on downs on its final drive.
