PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you are looking for a top notch local college football match-up this weekend, look no further than the Main Line on Saturday when Villanova hosts Penn.
Both teams are coming off victories last weekend. Villanova improved to 1-2 with an impressive 35-6 throttling of Stony Brook. The Wildcats rushed for 266 yards in the victory.
“That was a great win for us, we needed it badly,” Villanova head coach Andy Talley tells KYW Newsradio. “Our backs were up against the wall. It’s the first time this year, after three games, that we played two halves, put it together and didn’t turn the ball over. That was huge.”
Penn opened its season with a 27-21 win over Lafayette at Franklin Field. The Quakers rolled out to a 27-7 second-half lead and then withstood a late rally by the Leopards.
