Earlier on Friday, the 2014 Villanova Football Schedule was released. Highlighted by a trip to the Carrier Dome to take on Syracuse, the slate notably featured two Bye Weeks in the 11-game schedule.
Last season, the Bears went 5-7 including a 5-3 record in the MEAC.
Usually, these are well coordinated among Athletic Departments. At this point we are unsure if it was an oversight by the Wildcats or wishful thinking on part of the Bears.
A 12th game would have helped the 2013 Wildcats' prospects of making the NCAA Tournament. Was a lesson learned?
