Villanova Falls to James Madison on Senior Day, Dukes win First CAA Title Since 2008

Despite a great defensive effort, the Villanova Wildcats’ offense was unable to find the end zone on Senior Day at Villanova Stadium. On a brisk day at Villanova, the Villanova offense was just as cold as the temperatures outside. The passing game was inefficient, as quarterback Zach Bednarczyk was 12-of-30 for 71 passing yards on the day…. Read More ›

Never count this team out. For weeks the demise of Villanova football has been spoken from fans and pundits alike.

Villanova Claws Its Way to Fourth Quarter Victory in Spectacular Defeat of Richmond

Villanova has been the underdog the majority of the season.  Most did not expect today’s game to be this close, nor did they expect Villanova to be in the game at all. Villanova looked different today, but in a good way. The defense was strong  as usual: but the Villanova aerial assault, not the running game, carried the… Read More ›

A Fan’s Reaction to the Rhode Island Game

I’m happy to announce that Villanova Football is finally back. Yes, the season has been underway for months now, but the team in blue and white who played has had some ups and downs. On Saturday, this team showed that it still has the might of a power to be reckoned with.

Villanova Shows Some Muscle in 37-0 Shut-Out of Albany

Villanova has definitely moved on from the heartbreak they suffered against UPenn and William and Mary, because they did not look like a team that had just suffered back to back losses. In fact, they looked dominant. “This was the turnaround game for us this year,” Villanova head coach Andy Talley said.  “I thought we played really… Read More ›

A Fan’s Reaction to the William & Mary Game
