Villanova Football remains undefeated, will travel to #2 JMU

The Wildcats face the biggest challenger remaining on the schedule this Saturday.

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Monday Nova Nation! Another weekend, another huge win for Villanova Football. The Wildcats are one of the few undefeated teams left in the FCS, and the only team that’s 6-0. And that leads them into the biggest game of the regular season: at #2 JMU.

The Dukes just performed their own escape act, winning in OT against #24 Stony Brook. The teams should both still be ranked in the Top 5 after today’s polls come out, and this game could determine who wins the CAA.

With the season now half over, and Villanova playing 4 of their 5 games after JMU at home, a victory on Saturday could set them up for a great seed in the FCS Playoffs. Let’s Go Cats!
