Villanova vs Maine FCS Game Preview
The Maine Black Bears will host the Villanova Wildcats on Saturday in a CAA match-up. These teams last met on September September 28, 2019, and Villanova won 33-17 at home.
The Black Bears always talk about balance and they’re slowly achieving it this year. Maine is passing for 186.7 yards per game and rushing for 115 yards. Look for Maine to try to establish a run game early, but also take shots deep against Villanova’s secondary. Elijah Barnwell and Freddie Brock have emerged as the leaders in Maine’s running game, though QB Joe Fagnano is dangerous as well and presents another problem for the defense with his ability to take off.
