IT'S ONLY ONE loss, to an FBS program. But for Villanova, what hurts even more than knowing that you had a chance to double a seven-point lead over host Boston College from the 1-yard line just before halftime and couldn't, is the knowledge that now you have to play a pretty decent Fordham team on the road at night without as many as half your defensive starters. That's what can happen, especially at the FCS level, where depth is always a concern. And that's what the Wildcats, who dropped only from fifth to ninth in the rankings, have to deal with.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Villanova was genuinely angry and disappointed even though the Wildcats made Saturday's opening 24-14 loss at Boston College much more competitive than many figured. The players felt there was no sense feeling good about playing well against an Atlantic Coast Conference team, albeit, one that went 2-10 last season. No, the Wildcats felt they let one get away, although Boston College had a lot to do with it. Boston College was a totally different team after trailing 14-7 at halftime, but Villanova quarterback John Robertson wasn't conceding anything.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - It was a game of deception, hard hitting, and most of all determination from Villanova to show it belonged on the same field as its Atlantic Coast Conference counterpart. For well over a half, the Wildcats stood toe-to-toe with Boston College. But the Eagles flexed their Football Bowl Subdivision muscles for much of the final two quarters and defeated Villanova, 24-14, on Saturday before 30,922 at Alumni Stadium. It was the third year in a row that first-year Boston College coach Steve Addazio opened his season with a win over Villanova, but this one was much more difficult than the two he won at Temple by a combined 83-17 score.

Former Temple football coach Steve Addazio didn't establish roots in Philadelphia for long, but he said his home of the previous two years will always be a special place in what has been a nomadic coaching career. Addazio, 54, earned his first college head coaching job at Temple in the 2010 season, and he is now guiding Boston College, which opens its season by hosting Villanova in Saturday's noon matchup. Addazio said he understands that his quick departure from Temple didn't sit well with many alumni, players, and fans.

With the start of the high school football season just days away, we take a look at some of Southeastern Pennsylvania's top multipurpose threats: Kris Akins, North Penn, senior. With his speed, Akins, a third-year starter, causes headaches for foes as a wingback, cornerback and kick returner. Tate Carter, Spring-Ford, senior. The 5-foot-9, 185-pounder can play any of four offensive positions: quarterback, halfback, fullback and wide receiver. He is a safety on defense.

MANY THINGS have changed around the Villanova football program in the last year. Last summer at media day, the questions were about how the team would rebound after struggling the previous season. This year, the conversation was focused more on just how good this season's team could be. "With 17 starters back, a lot of people feel like we would be one of the teams to beat," head coach Andy Talley said yesterday. "We are no stranger to that, having won a national championship and backing it up with a semifinal appearance.
