What's at stake: Saturday's 45-35 loss to Villanova snapped Towson's 10-game winning streak and knocked it from the top of the Colonial Athletic Association. With a 2-1 record in the league, the Tigers — who fell from No. 3 to No. 7 in the most recent Football Championship Subdivision poll by The Sports Network — trail the No. 12 Wildcats (4-2, 3-0) and No. 14 Maine (5-1, 2-0) and are tied with No. 20 James Madison (5-2, 2-1) and Delaware (5-2, 2-1). Towson can avoid back-to-back losses to conference rivals for the first time since 2010 by taking care of Albany, which is in the midst of its debut season in the CAA. The Great Danes have lost their past five games and have not won since Sept. 7, when they edged Colgate, 37-34. These teams have not met since 2003, so unfamiliarity could be an early hurdle. The Tigers have won seven consecutive road games and eight of their past nine away games in conference play.
