Villanova coach Andy Talley believes there is no margin for error if his team is to make a second consecutive trip to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. The Wildcats are 4-3, and 3-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association with four games remaining. It is possible that Villanova could lose another game and receive a bid. The FCS playoffs grew from 20 to 24 teams this season, and the CAA, among the strongest conferences in the country, is expected to receive three or four bids.
