Villanova clearly was excited to play football in the first two weeks of the season, losing an overtime heartbreaker at Syracuse, an FBS team, and then rolling to a 44-point victory over Fordham, the 11th-ranked squad in FCS.

Last year, Villanova's football season began unraveling during the second week, and the Wildcats are hoping history won't repeat. A year ago, after losing to Boston College in the opener, Villanova fell at Fordham, 27-24. That win was an indication of how strong Fordham would be, as the Rams ended up earning a Football Championship Subdivision playoff berth, losing to eventual finalist Towson in the second round. Villanova, considered a potential national title contender in 2013, never really recovered from that loss and finished 6-5. Now, after coming off an emotionally draining, 27-26, double-overtime loss at Syracuse, the Wildcats host Fordham at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Villanova Stadium.
