Cavs Stunned By Tribe in Opener

Saturday September 5, 2009

B.W. Webb had three interceptions and William & Mary shutdown Virginia's new spread offense in a 26-14 win on Saturday.

The Tribe forced seven turnovers and Webb returned his last
interception for a 50-yard touchdown with 2:39 left in the fourth
quarter. The Cavaliers used all three of their quarterbacks, trying to get something going, but none were affective.

The best quarterback on the field, it seemed, was R.J. Archer. The redshirt senior who grew up near Charlottesville and was a regular in the stands at Scott Stadium threw for 184 yards and made only one mistake - a fourth-quarter interception that Virginia did not capitalize on.

The loss was Virginia's first to a Football Championship Subdivision school since 1986, when it lost 41-37 to the Tribe. William & Mary last beat an I-A school in 1998 (Temple).
