UIW Cardinals (1-2)


FCS team of the week: Villanova makes statement

(STATS) - Nationally ranked, but lacking a win over an opponent which actually had a win, Villanova sought to make a bold statement Saturday night.

It was loud and clear by the time the No. 18 Wildcats completed a 52-45 overtime win at No. 5 Towson in their CAA Football opener. Their first victory over a top-five opponent in six years also improved them to 4-0 for the first time since their 2009 FCS national championship season.

Quarterback Daniel Smith scored from 2 yards out to give Villanova the lead in overtime before the defense clamped down on All-American Tom Flacco on Towson's possession. The Wildcats are the STATS FCS Team of the Week.
