No. 16 USF (4-2-2, 2-0-2) at Villanova (4-5-1, 0-4)
When: Saturday, 1 p.m.
Where: Villanova Soccer Complex
The story: USF is coming off back-to-back ties to West Virginia and Pittsburgh and will be looking for success against Big East opponent Villanova on Saturday.
The Wildcats are winless in conference play this season but won their last game against Delaware 2-0. The Bulls are 1-0 against Villanova and travel to Philadelphia for the first time since 1985.
Villanova is not a particularly good kicking team, converting less than 10 percent of its goals per shot attempts. The Wildcats have tallied 16 yellow cards in the 10 games this season.
“Villanova will be tough,” coach George Kiefer said. “It’s always tough going up there.”
The game will be a particularly special game for midfielder Sammy Castellanos. The senior midfielder came to USF from Philadelphia, making Saturday’s game a homecoming.
Keep an eye on: defender/midfielder Anthony Wallace. The freshman played all 110 minutes of Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, taking three shots on goal. Wallace has proven he is a versatile player, able to play defense and midfield. He is still looking for his first career goal. Wallace has come close, though: He has 14 shots on goal, which is third on the team.
