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.

At the end of the day, the Army-Navy rivalry is one of respect. With that being said, that doesn't mean Navy and their fans can't poke a little fun at Army for losing 14-straight games in the rivalry.

Game over. Flawless victory.

Donald Trump to attend Army-Navy game at M&T Bank Stadium

President-elect Donald Trump plans to attend Saturday's Army-Navy game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md. 

Soon to be Commander-In-Chief of all branches of the military, Trump will split his time between the two sidelines, as is customary. 

Past presidents have attended the longstanding rivalry game, including President Barack Obama in 2011. 

According to ESPN, Navy has beaten Army the last three times presidents have been in the audience. Then again, Navy has won the last 14 consecutive contests anyway.
