    Villanova @ Colgate 8/24 Time TBD

    Might as well get this going.

    Colgate website is saying this game will be nationally televised.

    Nova coming off back-to-back 5-6 seasons while Colgate posted an impressive 10-2 record knocking off CAA teams UNH & JMU along their way.

    Nova returns 11 starters while Colgate returns 8.

    Have at it.

    Bullies to some Carrib. Lost 71-0 to UNH (34-0) & JMU (37-0) last season. Can’t see how Colgate sees us as threat early next season.

    Holy crap is Colgate trying to make a statement by playing 3 CAA teams the first 4 games of the year??? Hosting Nova 8/24, at W&M on 9/14 and hosting Maine on 9/21 and playing at Air Force on 8/31. That is a tough start for sure.

    With 2 of them at home

    We played three last year (counting JMU in the playoffs, that is), and it went pretty well

    Raiders will be rebuilding a bit, as the first post mentions, but it should be a fun start to the season. Suspecting it's ESPN that comes back for the Week 0 festivities.

    Here is the article from your website talking about the schedule for 2019 and mentions the Week 0 and that any games this weekend HAVE to be nationally televised and it must be out of conference there are 4 games that weekend.

    I believe Colgate's top defensive player (admittedly not looking up stats), TJ Holl, transferred to Louisville. So they'll be down at least one key starter on that side of the ball.

    Yeah. Unlike this year, they would've certainly earned their seed with that SOS.
