DURHAM, N.H. -- Jonathan Grimes rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown Saturday as William & Mary defeated New Hampshire 13-3 in a Colonial Athletic Association game.
The Tribe (7-2, 5-1) won their eighth in a row against New Hampshire (5-4, 3-3) and have won 12 of 14 in the series overall.
Grimes bounced back from a tough game last week, when he had only 23 rushing yards at North Carolina. The Tribe beat New Hampshire with defense, holding the Wildcats to 179 total yards.
The victory ensured that William & Mary will maintain at least a share of first place in the NEC. The Tribe was tied for the conference lead with Villanova, which played at Rhode Island, and Delaware, which hosted Towson, going into Saturday's games.
