Saturday's X-Factor: The Mercurial Terrance West

Last year, Towson running back Terrance West was the best freshman in the FCS football, and he was voted so by the media, winning the inaugural Jerry Rice Award. After running for 1,294 yards and a ridiculous 29 touchdowns in only 11 games, West looked prime to dominate this season, leading Towson to another season near the top of the CAA.

That wasn't to be, because seven games into Towson's 2012 season, it's unknown whether West is still even on  the Towson football team, and it's much cloudier than that as to whether he will be available to play against Villanova ever since he posted a (since deleted) tweet last week that hinted to his departure from the program. The next week against Old Dominion, West did not get a single carry in the game, and apparently looked detached from his teammates and his status for this Saturday seems to be up in the air.

If West is available, Towson is a very dangerous team, but if he's not, they're in a significantly worse position against this Villanova team, which has been playing very well lately.
