Undefeated Villanova Football prepares to defend home turf

The #8 Wildcats take on #12 Maine on Saturday


Happy Friday Nova Nation! It’s another matchup of highly ranked teams this Saturday when your #8 Villanova Wildcats take on the #12 Maine Black Bears. Villanova has been firing on all cylinders this season with an attacking defense and a much improved offense. Heck, as you’ll read bellow, they’re even using drones to make this team better!

Now they face a 2-2 Maine team that’s much better than their record would indicate. The defending CAA Champs are looking for redemption after they lost to Towson, the team Nova just beat to jump ten spots in the polls. Both sides should be fired up for this one, so be sure to get out to the stadium and cheer on our team!
