Bad weather created a sluggish defensive fight early, but the Stony Brook football team allowed the No. 8 Villanova Wildcats to capitalize on initially unfavorable opportunities in a 33-14 blowout loss on Saturday, Nov. 13 in Pennsylvania.
Winners of three straight after their 22-17 road win against Maine last weekend, the Stony Brook football will travel to face the No. 8 Villanova Wildcats at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13. The Wildcats occupy second place in the Colonial Athletic Association with a 7-2 (5-1 CAA) record and are coming off a 35-0 road win against Elon.
After a pair of losses at home and coming off the bye-week, the Stony Brook football team looked to take down a top-five nationally ranked team. The final, 36-35, does not truly reflect what occurred during the game. It was a tale of two very different halves.
