Tribe football reaches the playoffs

By William & Mary Athletics

Tribe football closed out their season in early December with a loss to the Richmond Spiders in the second round of the NCAA FCS Playoffs. This was William & Mary’s 10th trip to the postseason and their first since 2010.
The Tribe earned an at-large bid after winning a share of the Colonial Athletic Conference title along with Richmond and James Madison. They advanced to the second round with a 52-49 victory against Duquesne, finishing with a 6-0 record at Zable Stadium this season.

In addition to the team’s collective success, a school-record 16 Tribe standouts combined to earn 20 all-conference honors.

The Tribe finished the season at 9-4.
