The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for August 28, 2014

New, comments

Daily Villanova links.

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! College football officially kicked off last night with former conference foe Georgia State taking on Albilene Christian at the Georgia Dome, which was 18% full. Maybe stadium issues aren't that big of a deal to move up to FBS.

And now, the "news."
