Heading in to their final game of the regular season, Villanova knows they need a win on the road at James Madison to keep their playoff hopes alive. A win, and with the right result in Richmond, and they could possibly even grab a share of the CAA championship.
On offense, the story of the season has been injuries and thus inconsistent play. This week, the Wildcats will be without yet another running back in Matt Gudzak, who suffered an injury in the win over Richmond last week. That leaves just Gary Underwood and true freshman Aaron Forbes on the depth chart with Javon White out for the season with a broken leg.
Some good news on the offensive line sees Kyle Wallace back at RG, and his inclusion should be a big lift to an offensive line that has seen plenty of shuffling this season.
No major news to report on defense, which has been the rock of this Wildcats' team and has stayed injury free. Their depth on every level has proved immense. They'll be called on yet again to slow down a powerful Dukes offense.
