Andy Talley will retire after a season with a ranked Villanova Football squad.

Following the crowning of James Madison as the National Champions, STATS has released their final season poll where Talley’s Wildcats (9-4) were tabbed at the #11 spot.

Besides the Dukes and Wildcats, the CAA was also represented by Richmond at #9 and New Hampshire at #17.

Although not confirmed, Villanova will most likely open the 2017 schedule against Temple over Labor Day Weekend.
