Dante Cook returned an interception 84 yards for another Tribe touchdown, and Drake Kuhn kicked a 42-yard field goal.

Villanova (3-2, 1-1) closed within a touchdown as Chris Whitney ran for a 4-yard touchdown and passed 47 yards to Norman White for another, but William & Mary recovered an onside kick with 2:10 remaining and ran out the clock.
