It’s been done before, and the Owls are reeling.

Happy Tuesday, ‘Nova Nation! I hope you all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend and are refreshed and ready to go as we enter fall sports season. Basketball will come soon enough, but football is currently on the brain for yours truly.

Villanova had an impressive week 1 win while Temple took a beatdown at the hands of Notre Dame. This weekend they’ll meet for the Mayor’s Cup for the first time since 2012. Can Villanova get paid AND pull off the upset?

I’m thinking yes.

And now, the “news.”
