RICHMOND, Va. -- Eric Warad threw for 140 yards and rushed for a career-high 136 yards to lead Richmond to a 16-13 win over Elon on Saturday in the first round of the Football Championship Subdivision championships.

The Spiders (11-1) will host Appalachian State next Saturday in the quarterfinals. Richmond defeated Appalachian State 33-13 in the quarterfinals last year.

The Phoenix (9-3), who made their first playoff appearance, will be the first team to face Richmond in the new Robins Stadium on Sept. 18, 2010. This year's playoffs will end Richmond's tenure at UR Stadium that started in 1929.

Adam Schreiner missed a pair of field goals in the final 1:30. The Phoenix moved to Richmond's 31 with 7 second left before Shreiner's 47-yard attempt was short.
