Villanova football to have three games televised in 2012

Villanova's football team will appear on television three times during the 2012 season, the Colonial Athletic Association announced Tuesday.

The Wildcats' season opener against Temple on Aug. 31 at Lincoln Financial Field will be shown on ESPN3. Two more games will be on Comcast SportsNet -- a Sept. 15 matchup against Rhode Island at Villanova Stadium, and a home date on Oct. 27 against Towson.

The Wildcats will be looking to improve upon a 2-9 record in 2011.
