Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! We haven't talked about it much lately - mostly because Villanova Football is still in season - but Tanoh Kpassagnon looks like he's going to be the latest Wildcat in the NFL. He's already been invited (and accepted) to the Senior Bowl, and he's on almost everybody's draft board as a potential steal from the FCS given his already insane production plus immense upside.

But really, he's just the spearhead of a stout Wildcats defense which is among the best in the FCS. They're going up against a strong offense this weekend, so they'll need to be at their best.

And now, the "news."
