Villanova will travel Richmond on Saturday for an early kickoff in what appears (at least on paper) to be their last major road test of the conference season. The Wildcats (7-1) have ripped off seven straight wins since the heartbreaking season opening loss to Syracuse and are battling to keep pace with New Hampshire in the race for the CAA championship.
The Spiders (6-2) have climbed as high as #13 in the latest FCS polls, and are coming off two dominating wins against Rhode Island and Elon. The two blowouts have helped new quarterback Michael Rocco settle in after the season-ending ankle injury to Michael Strauss.
