Towson seeks first road win at No. 19 Villanova

Give the 3-4 Towson Tigers this much: they only lose to the best. Twice to BCS programs, twice to teams ranked in the FCS top 10.

Another ranked foe is on tap Saturday (3:30, Comcast SportsNet) as No. 23 Towson travels to face No. 19 Villanova.

The Tigers, 2-2 in Colonial Athletic Association games this season, are 0-3 on the road this campaign and 1-3 all-time at Villanova (6-2, 4-1).

Towson quarterback Grant Enders, who threw a career-high 41 passes for 290 yards in last week's loss to No. 7 Old Dominion, has completed 63.8 percent of his passes for 1,405 yards and seven touchdowns.

The top defensive team in the CAA, the Tigers are allowing 302 yards per game and will need to be on their game against a Wildcats attack that tops the conference with 269.1 rushing yards per game. Villanova, tied with New Hampshire atop the conference standings, ranks second in scoring defense (19.0).

In addition to Old Dominion, Towson has lost to James Madison, LSU and Kent State.

For almost two decades, Ray Lewis was one of the main attractions when it came to football in Maryland. Now, another Lewis will have the chance to make a name for himself in the Old Line State.

Rayshad Lewis, Ray's son, announced Monday on his Twitter that he'll be transferring to College Park to play for the Terps. He'll be able to debut for DJ Durkin's team in 2018 after sitting out next season.

As a true freshman at Utah State last year, Lewis had nearly 500 receiving yards on 40 catches. Eight of those grabs went for 20-plus yards, and he found the end zone twice for the Aggies.

According to Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun, Maryland basketball legend Juan Dixon will be named the head coach at Coppin State, his first men's head coaching job.

After his playing career wound down after stints in the NBA and Europe, Dixon joined Mark Turgeon's staff in College Park but was not retained after the 2015-16 season. 

For 2016-17, Dixon took over the UDC women's basketball coaching job finishing with a 3-25 record, but only had nine scholarship athletes. 

Dixon will take over a struggling Coppin State program that has only won 25 games in the past three seasons and hasn't finished with a winning record in the MEAC since 2011-12.

Coppin State became only the third No. 15 seed to top a No. 2 seed in 1997, but have only made the NCAA tournament one time since then (2008). Dixon will look to return Coppin State to the success it had during the 1990's.
