VILLANOVA, Pa. - Villanova University head football coach Andy Talley today announced the 2013 Wildcat schedule. The Wildcats will play an 11-game slate in 2013, including eight Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) games and three non conference contests.
The season will kickoff on Saturday, August 31, with a game at ACC member Boston College. This will be the first game between the Wildcats and Eagles since the 1980 season. Villanova will play at Fordham on Sept. 7 before having a bye week on Sept. 14.
The home and CAA opener is set for September 21 against Stony Brook. This will be a rematch of last year's first round NCAA playoff game. Stony Brook will be the first of three consecutive home games. The Wildcats will host Penn on Sept. 28 and William & Mary on Oct. 5.
Following the three-game home stand, Villanova will play four of the next five games on the road. The Wildcats play back-to-back road games at Towson on Oct. 12 and at New Hampshire on Oct. 19, before returning to the Main Line to host Maine during Homecoming Weekend on Oct. 26.
