John Robertson completed 17 of 24 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 61 yards and a touchdown in Villanova's weekend contest against Fordham. He did it all in less than three full quarters, being pulled in the second half once the 'Cats were comfortably ahead.

While the Wildcats' defense was also key in the 50-6 dismantling of the Rams, it is Robertson who was honored by the league this week, earning their Offensive Player of the Week award.

He is now in second-place on Villanova's all-time touchdowns list behind Brian Westbrook, who scored an astounding 89 times on the Main Line.
