College of William and Mary vs. No. 14 Villanova University
Control the line
Expect the College to attempt to establish the run early in hopes of knocking Villanova off the line of scrimmage. The Tribe’s offensive line will enjoy a significant size advantage over the Wildcat defensive front four and Head Coach Jimmye Laycock will hope to exploit that advantage by creating a solid ground game. Look for senior tailback DeBrian Holmes to be the featured back in the College’s running game tomorrow.
Stop Antwon Young
Villanova’s junior quarterback Antwon Young is among the most dynamic playmaking threats in the CAA, possessing the ability to create plays with his legs as well as his arm. Although he’s questionable for Saturday’s contest while hampered by a knee injury, the College must prepare as if he will play and be ready to pressure Young and contain any long scrambles. He led the Wildcats to a 63-24 blowout win over the Tribe in 2007.
