September 23, 2023 – Villanova, PA — A little rain from tropical storm Ophelia couldn’t slow down the Wildcat’s offensive machine during their 35-9 victory over the Rams.

Nova rang up 459 total yards, with quarterback Connor Watkins as the top rusher with 113 yards and 3 TDs.

Running back TD Ayo-Durojaive sprinted for over 100 yards with 1 touchdown. Rounding out the Nova scoring was DeeWil Barlee with 43 yard and 1 TD. And wide receiver Jaaron Hayek finished with 3 receptions for 78 yards.

Putting a little damper on the win was Nova’s 12 penalties for over 100 yards. But the wildcats move on with a 3-1 record, facing a tough Albany squad in NY next week.
