The Villanova Wildcats have released their 2019 schedule as they are the 13th DI and 2nd Big East team to do so. The Wildcats are coming into the 2019 season after a 2018 campaign where they went 10-6 overall and 3-2 in the Big East. They made it into the NCAA tournament as an at-large bid and lost to Duke in the first round. The Wildcats look to get back to that point and more in 2019.

Villanova will open the season on the road against Penn State. The Wildcats first home game will be against Hofstra on February 23rd. This 2019 schedule isn't much different from what we are used to seeing from Villanova as they play the same teams as last year. They will have some very tough out of conference games such as Penn State and Maryland as well as some tough conference games. The one interesting point on Villanova's 2019 schedule is that they will participate in the first ever Philadelphia Lacrosse Challenge that will feature Villanova, Drexel, Penn, and Saint Joseph's.
