16 teams remain in the 2014 FCS Playoffs, and the top 8 seeds will all be in action today after earning a first-round bye last week. For 6-seed Villanova, the week off provided players with the chance to rest and recover from a grueling CAA season - Andy Talley is confident that he will be getting 3 starters back against Liberty while one of his most dynamic playmakers in Gary Underwood remains questionable.
Liberty earned a trip to Villanova Stadium by way of a come-from-behind win over James Madison. The Flames went 8-4 in the regular season and feature a balanced offensive attack and a steady defense. Not many teams have corralled Walter Payton finalist John Robertson, so this game may turn in to a bit of a shootout.
