Villanova and William & Mary were meeting for the first time in two years after not playing last season. The previous meeting between the teams also ended in a 20-16 score at Villanova Stadium, although that game was won by the Tribe on October 1, 2011.
William & Mary leads the all-time series with the Wildcats by a 16-14-1 margin. Villanova head coach Andy Talley is 12-11-1 in his career versus the Tribe.
The game-winning rushing touchdown by sophomore quarterback John Robertson in the fourth quarter was the fifth rushing touchdown of the season for Robertson and the 19th of his career. Robertson moved into the top 10 in school history in career rushing touchdowns and is currently tied for ninth place in the category along with Ron Sency (1985-88) and Matt Dicken (2004-07). Ahead of that group in eighth place is Vince Thompson (1975-78) with 21 career rushing touchdowns.
John Robertson also moved into eighth place in the Wildcats record book for career total offense with 4,312 yards. Ahead of him in seventh place is Villanova legend Brian Westbrook (1997-01), who accumulated 4,499 yards during his career.
Junior running back Kevin Monangai has 1,708 career rushing yards and moved into 13th place in school history during the win over William & Mary. Monangai needs only 107 more rushing yards to move into the top 10 in the Villanova record book.
Senior kicker Mark Hamilton moved into the Villanova top-10 for career scoring thanks to his eight-point performance (two field goals, two PATs) against William & Mary. Hamilton has 188 career points and ranks 10th in the Wildcats record book, six points behind Anthony Cowsette (1993-96) in ninth place.
