Villanova's loss to Towson allowed New Hampshire to take sole possession of first place in the CAA, where they control their own destiny.
Villanova now needs some help if they are going to compete for the CAA Championship after their homecoming loss to Towson over the weekend, but they are still looking good for a playoff berth if they can take care of business over the next few weeks.

New Hampshire 40, Rhode Island 20
A balanced performance by the conference leaders saw them double up poor Rhody at home. Sean Goldrich scored with both his arm and his feet while Chris Setian also scored on the ground and via the air for the Wildcats.
Old Dominion 31, Delaware 26
Taylor Heinicke threw for 375 yards and ran for three touchdowns while Tyree Lee rushed for a career-high 128 yards and a touchdown for the Monarchs. It wasn't all good for Heinicke though, as he also threw multiple interceptions on the day - the machine appears to be slowing down as the season progresses.
James Madison 28, Georgia State 21
Redshirt junior tailback Dae'quan Scott carried the ball 25 times for 130, eclipsing the 2,000-yard rushing mark for his career, and added a touchdown on the afternoon. Michael Birdsong got his first career start for the Dukes and went 11-24 for 119 yards with a touchdown and interception.
Maine 24, William & Mary 10
Marcus Wasilewski passed for 191 yards and 3 touchdowns while Rickey Stevens recorded 125 total yards of offense. It was really the Maine defense that starred in this one however, hold the Tribe at bay for most of the game including a couple of stops in their own end.
