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.
