NEWARK, Del. (AP) John Robertson threw for 217 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner in the final seconds, to give Villanova a 35-28 win over Delaware on Saturday.

Robertson also led in rushing with 117 yards for the Wildcats (10-2, 7-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Kevin Monangai added 71 yards and two scores.
