Villanova redshirt freshman quarterback John Robertson has been named the Sports Network National Freshman of the Week. Robertson earns the honor for his play in Saturday's 38-14 upset win over No. 3 Old Dominion.
In the victory, Robertson completed 10-of-18 for 151 yards and a 44-yard touchdown pass to go with 24 carries for 189 yards and three touchdowns. The 189 yard performance ranks as the ninth best effort in Villanova history. It also represents the most rushing yards ever by a Villanova quarterback. Robertson has tallied 765 yards of total offense in the last two games.
Robertson and the Wildcats return to action on Saturday, Oct. 20, with a game at Georgia State. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
