For the first time ever, Villanova has made it to the NCAA Division 1 Football Playoffs three straight years. One ominous hurdle in their way is the fact that they have never in their history won a road playoff game. There have been close calls such as the highway robbery that took place at the hands of the officials at McNeese State in 2002, or the devastating loss against Rodney Landers and JMU in 2008, but they have never been able to do it. Stephen F. Austin presents a whole new challenge, as Nacogdoches is the furthest a Villanova team will have ever traveled to play an FCS opponent. Luckily for The 'Cats, they will have a bye week to prepare for the long trip and The Lumberjacks (such a homoerotic nickname.)
Winning while facing adversity is kinda what this team does best.. so let's do this.
