PHILADELPHIA (CBS – Villanova looks to be hitting its stride with one month of the season in the books.
After an 0-2 start, the Wildcats have won two straight by identical scores of 35-6. Last weekend, they took care of the two-time defending Ivy League champions Penn.
“(Quarterback) John Robertson had a great game,” Villanova head coach Andy Talley tells KYW Newsradio. “He rushed for over 100 yards (132), threw for (266) yards. All in all, we kept our mistakes to a minimum. (There were) some very costly turnovers for Penn, (we) blocked a field goal, ran it back for a touchdown. So those things add up. But it was a really good day for Villanova.”
For his efforts, Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week. Talley is quite happy to have him as the trigger man of the offense.
