Richmond Secures Share of CAA Title with Wickersham’s Trick Plays, Defeats William & Mary 27-26

In Williamsburg, Va., Richmond narrowly defeated William & Mary 27-26 in a game that ended with some controversial calls. Quarterback Kyle Wickersham led the Spiders to victory with a touchdown run, and both a running back and wide receiver threw touchdown passes.

The game ended with a pass interference call that gave William & Mary one last play, resulting in a touchdown. However, the Tribe’s 2-point conversion attempt was incomplete, sealing the win for Richmond.

Richmond’s win allowed them to share the Coastal Athletic Conference title with Albany and Villanova, despite not playing either team in the conference.

Key plays included a 5-yard pass from running back Savon Smith to Brooks Heagarty, a 10-yard touchdown run by Wickersham, and a touchdown pass from wide receiver Jasiah Williams to Connor Deveney.

Wickersham had 152 passing yards and 72 rushing yards, while William & Mary’s Malachi Imoh ran for 91 yards and threw a touchdown pass. Darius Wilson threw for 247 yards and a touchdown for the Tribe.
