WILLIAMSBURG — After posting the best regular season in school history and securing a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title, the William & Mary football team will continue its quest for a National Championship as the No. 5 seed in the upcoming NCAA FCS Playoffs.
The Tribe will have a bye next week before hosting the winner of Gardner-Webb/Eastern Kentucky at Zable Stadium on Dec. 3 at 2 p.m.
Sunday’s postseason announcement marks the program’s 11th NCAA Playoff bid, as the Tribe’s last appearance came in 2015.
With its Capital Cup victory at No. 11 Richmond, W&M finished the regular season with a 10-1 overall record and a 7-1 mark in conference play. The 10 regular season wins are the most in school history. Additionally, the Tribe posted a 6-0 mark on the road, which marks W&M’s best record away from Williamsburg in the program’s 129-year history.
