Villanova hosts Towson tonight in the CAA opener for both schools. This has been a budding rivalry in recent seasons, with several closely contested games as both schools have jockeyed for position atop the CAA.
Like ‘Nova the Tigers are 1-1 on the season, dropping their FBS matchup against South Florida before winning a shootout against St. Francis (Pa.) 35-28 last weekend. They won last season’s matchup 28-21 courtesy of not one but two Bednarczyk pick-sixes.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
One of my favorite breakfast cocktails, this is simple and repeatable all afternoon. Half of your favorite Scotch (though I wouldn’t waste the good stuff on a mixed drink) and half pineapple juice. Enjoy, and I’ll see you all in the game thread for the first time this season!
