Fresh off a road victory over a ranked opponent, things won’t get any easier for Villanova in week 2. The Wildcats are set to renew the Mayor’s Cup series with cross-town rival Temple on Saturday afternoon for the first time since 2012.
While the Owls were handed a tall glass of humility last weekend at Notre Dame, this is still an FBS-FCS ‘buy’ game and the Owls will be a handful for the ‘Cats.
Villanova’s defense will need to set the tone early and the offense will likely need to score several times if the ‘Cats are going to have a chance to come away with the win.
Here’s how you can watch the game on Saturday afternoon.
