November 25, 1995|By Doug Brown | Doug Brown,SUN STAFF

Villanova sophomore kicker Mark Kiefer (St. Mary's) had a major role in knocking Richmond out of the Division I-AA playoffs.

Kiefer set a school and Yankee Conference record with field goals of 27, 30, 31, 37 and 42 yards (his longest of the season) in a 28-0 victory over Richmond (7-2-1).

Kiefer finished with nine field goals in 14 attempts and Villanova finished 3-8.

* Greg Kyler (Poly) caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to give the fourth-ranked Tennessee Volunteers a 34-31, come-from-behind win over Kentucky last week.

Kyler, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound redshirt freshman, caught eight passes for 77 yards in the game. He has played in all 10 games for the Vols.
