LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- VMI's Patrick McKinney stopped Matt
McGreevy's attempted 2-point conversion run with no time left
Saturday as the Keydets opened the season with a 20-19 victory over
Ryan Alexander's 5-yard touchdown pass to Beau Jones on the
game's final play pulled the Wildcats within one. Instead of
kicking the extra point and going to overtime, Davidson chose to go
for the win on the road.
McKinney, who had a game-high 14 tackles, stopped McGreevy
inches from the goal line.
The Wildcats led 10-7 entering the fourth quarter, but VMI's
Sean Mizzer scored on runs of 10 and 63 yards to give the Keydets a
20-10 lead with 5:41 left.
Davidson's Brad Smith kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:55
left, and Alexander's TD pass to Jones capped a 14-play, 75-yard
drive that took the final 1:19 off the clock.
Mizzer had 173 yards on 22 carries as the Keydets rolled up 244
yards on the ground.
