    9/2: Villanova @ Lehigh

    Does Lehigh have any sort of chance against the nationally-ranked Wildcats?

    Engineers need to make sure they're not looking ahead to the Fordham game. Nova is good

    Lehigh has a slight chance if they can get the offense moving at the start and make Villanova play catchup. Other than one Colgate game in the playoffs, every PL team UNH has played in recent years has run plays that just take too long to develop. If Lehigh does that against Villanova, they will get absolutely smothered by the NOVA defense. They could increase their chances if Fordham would loan the Engineers Chase Edmunds for the game.

    Going to be very tough. Unlike last year, Nova not coming off a Pitt game. They will be a fresh veteran squad. LU should be able to score but I think we will need to win TOP to protect our D to get a W. We have a very good RB in Dom behind a veteran OL. Even so we will need to establish pass 1st with Mayes and WRs to give the run game some room.

    Game comes down to Lehigh's front 7. They were pushed around by Nova and UNH last year. They have depth and 5th year guys which is something that hasn't existed since 2011. They MUST be able to control the 'Nova ground game. 'Nova is going to churn out yards but hopefully not 396 worth.

    Lehigh's offense will have enough success to be in position to win. The defense win tell the tale....

    I'd say yes, they have an excellent chance.

    no doubt about Edmunds talent, but our RB, Dom, is excellent and RB will not be a weakness for our O, what we could use is a LB like Butkus

    I think they have very little chance, Nova's defense is too good and Lehigh's defense is too ****ty
