Sagarin (or Gagarin as auto correct insists) has the Sussman Squad as 8 to 11 pt dogs against the Wildcats. You know, as bad as things apparently went on Saturday, UA was one play from taking the lead inside of a couple of minutes left. And that was against an established CAA team at their homecoming. Could be worse...we could be UB fans!

Villlanova favored by 6 1/2 by Massey, by 7 1/2+ by Sagarin.

 

Don't forget to add in the home-field advantage when using Sagarin!: 55.68 - 48.39 + 2.42 = 9.71

 

I remembered the .42, I forgot the 2. That's one reason I don't gamble.

SB Nation story said "Zach Bednarczyk struggled mightily and went just 6-15 for 67 yards and two very bad INTs before exiting with a headache, likely putting him in the concussion protocol for this week"

Edit: Singleais tweeted yesterday that Talley said it was a concussion

Villanova coach Andy Talley said QB Zach Bednarczyk suffered concussion vs. Richmond. Doesn't know if Bednarczyk will play vs. UAlbany.
I don't know how he can play if he just went onto concussion protocols on Monday.

One of ncaa.com's FCS Game to Watch http://www.ncaa.com/news/football/article/2016-10-19/fcs-games-watch-north-dakota-st-looks-bounce-back-first-loss though I'd question that the loss to Maine was "stunning" and he doesn't seem to know about Bednarczyk's concussion.

 

Villanova vs. Albany – Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
albany_0.jpg?itok=5QvFzKXc
Albany has lost two straight games to drop to No. 24 in the latest coaches poll.Albany AthleticsAlbany has lost two straight games to drop to No. 24 in the latest coaches poll.After a three-overtime loss to Richmond and a stunning defeat to Maine, Albany is slipping in the rankings and is now in dire need of a win. The No. 24 Great Danes will have to do so against the No. 17 Wildcats, who are also coming off a loss to those same Spiders.
Both teams’ offensive stars were held to limited success in Week 7. Albany only managed 16 points behind a subpar day from star running back Elijah Ibitokun-Hanks (41 yards) while Villanova was shut out and held to under 93 yards rushing.
Limiting both respective rushing attacks for a second straight week will be the defensive gameplan on both sides, as it largely carries each offense. In particular, Albany will certainly be happy if turnover-prone Villanova quarterback Zach Bednarczyk is forced to take to the air more than the Wildcats would like.
While both teams have started off the year on a high note, neither has really picked up a signature win to date. This Saturday’s matchup is a chance for both sides to do exactly that.

Philadelphia Inquirer : With starter out, Villanova backup QB DaSilva must step up but they still won't say that Bednarczyk is definitely out

 

TU+ UAlbany football looks to revive running game

Gattuso said. "EB is a good back, and he's trying to turn every run into a 30-yard run instead of making the runs that are there.

 

Ibitokun-Hanks said he finds himself hesitating and waiting for holes that aren't there.

Offensive tackle Kevin Malloy wouldn't lay all the blame at Ibitokun-Hanks' nimble feet. He said the offensive line has to do a better job against Villanova of moving the defensive line and getting to the linebackers so Ibitokun-Hanks has room to run.
"He'll have more confidence and hit the hole full speed, run through the safety and hopefully run it for a touchdown like he used to," Malloy said.

Injuries for UAlbany pilling up. Sakowski is officially done for the season with his forearm injury..had surgery yesterday..per Singelais. Zee traveling but not expected to play.

 

On TWC..Gattuso noted the team has to help out Hanks by going to the air a bit to get defenders out of the box. But also said how tough it is to do so when you're down your top two WRs in Harris and Zee.
