Villanova heads South to face the Elon Phoenix on Saturday afternoon in what will be the first meeting between the CAA foe, ever. Elon are still in the early days of their CAA membership, and this is the first season since they joined that they’ll face ‘Nova.
Villanova is 3-1 after a dominant defensive showing at Lafayette last weekend, and will look to build on their 1-0 conference record.
The Phoenix enter the game at 2-2, and didn’t look like they were going to be much of a threat in the first few weeks. That all changed last weekend when they went on the road and crushed #8 William & Mary 27-10.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 3:30pm ET. The game will not be televised.
Live Video Stream: It looks like Phoenix All-Access will stream the game, which will be simulcast on CAA.tv
Radio: All Villanova Football games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 Sports WTEL-AM. You can also use a radio app such as Tune.in.
Odds: SportBet has the line at Villanova -14, and the Over/Under at 34.5.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
It finally got below 70 degrees late this week down South, and that means it’s officially Fall and it’s time to break out the whiskey. I’m actually a bit nervous for this game. We’ve never played Elon, it’s on the road, and they’re coming off a huge win. What once looked like a sure-fire victory is now not. Stress drinking!
