WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (10/2/10) -- After jumping out to a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter, the seventh-ranked Tribe held off top-ranked Villanova’s second half comeback bid to earn a 31-24 victory in front of a sold-out Zable Stadium. The victory was W&M’s third win against the nation’s top-ranked team since 2005 (New Hampshire in 2005 and Southern Illinois in 2009). The triumph also extended the Tribe’s home game winning streak to eight games. Walter Payton Award Watch List honoree Jonathan Grimes recorded his second threetouchdown performance of the season while totaling a game-high 83 rushing yards. W&M got on the scoreboard first when Grimes capped off a 13-play, 86-yard drive with an 8-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. The Tribe pushed the lead to 14-0 early in the second quarter on a 4-yard scamper by Grimes. The touchdown was set up on the preceding play when Paulus connected with Moody for a 36-yard completion deep down the middle. Facing a fourth-and-2 from the Tribe’s 17-yard line, Villanova (3-2, 1-1) quarterback Chris Whitney lofted a short pass to the right side that Cook intercepted and returned 84-yards down the Tribe sideline for a touchdown with 5:03 left in the second quarter. Villanova put its first points on the board when placekicker Nick Yako kicked a 26-yard field goal with 7 seconds remaining in the half. Grimes third touchdown of the day, a 6-yard run with 7:13 showing in the third quarter, gave the College its biggest lead at 28-3. W&M later answered Villanova’s first touchdown, a 3-yard run by Whitney, with a 42-yard field goal by Drake Kuhn. Villanova responded with a 4-yard touchdown run by Whitney, and Norman White made a leaping 47-yard touchdown catch (on a fourth-and-28) with 2:10 remaining. However, Grimes came up with the ensuing onside kick, and W&M was able to pick up a first down and run out the clock.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (10/9/10) -- The No. 4/5 William and Mary football team extended its winning streak to five games with a 26-7 victory against Rhode Island at Zable Stadium. In addition to allowing just one score, the Tribe outgained the Rams, 370-233, and forced three turnovers en route to securing its ninth consecutive win at home. Payton Award candidate junior running back Jonathan Grimes became the program’s career record holder for all-purpose yards (4,658) with a 163 output against the Rams. The Tribe took a 3-0 lead when redshirt freshman placekicker Drake Kuhn capped off a 9-play, 59-yard drive with a 37-yard field goal from the left hash early in the second quarter. Grimes keyed the drive with 24 yards on three carries. After holding URI to a three-and-out on its next possession, the Tribe took a 10-0 lead when Paulus connected with Moody on a 17-yard touchdown strike with 5:44 remaining in the half. Cook forced a fumble on Rhode Island’s ensuing kickoff return, and freshman Airek Green returned it 19 yards to the Rams’ 2-yard line. Although W&M was unable to get in the end zone, Kuhn made a 19-yard field goal to push the advantage to 13-0. Rhode Island responded on its next possession, however, and cut the margin to 13-7 when running back Ayo Isijola scored on a 20-yard touchdown run with just 0:58 remaining in the half. Despite taking over inside its own 20, Rhode Island marched to the Tribe’s 3-yard line but failed to convert a fourth-and-goal when senior cornerback Ben Cottingham broke up a pass in the right side of the end zone intended for Isijola. After seeming to hold the Tribe to a 3-and-out on the ensuing drive, URI was whistled for a roughing the punter penalty that enabled the Tribe to post a 19-play, 97-yard drive that lasted 8:15 and culminated with a 3-yard touchdown run by Marriner to put the College ahead, 19-7. W&M’s two-point conversion attempt failed. On the first play of the next series, Francks intercepted URI quarterback Steve Probst at the Rams’ 29-yard line and Riggins scored on a 9-yard scamper five plays later. W&M’s defensive unit held Rhode Island to just 29 yards of total offense in the fourth quarter to help preserve the victory.
