Tribe Still Climbing in the Polls

William and Mary has climbed again in the national FCS rankings, following its thrilling victory over James Madison last Saturday at Zable Stadium.  Running back Kendell Anderson, shown above hitting a gaping hole in the JMU defense, led the way with 138 rushing yards, while quarterback Steve Cluley contributed 235 yards passing. Mikal Abdul-Saboor added 68 yards rushing on a mere 12 carries. For a thorough account of the game, which some are calling a "classic shoot out," go here at the William and Mary Sports Blog. The Tribe now, 5-1 in the CAA and 6-2 overall, ranks 12th in both the STATS and the FCS Coaches Poll and stands second in the CAA standings behind the University of Richmond.   

The Tribe takes on CAA rival Elon today at noon.  The Phoenix, 3-5 overall and 2-3 in the CAA, are coming off an impressive 21-7 victory over Stonybrook and should be tough at home.  Hopefully the Tribe will emerge victorious and continue their march to the FCS playoffs!  Go Tribe!
