VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) — Jonathan Grimes scored two touchdowns and Drake Kuhn kicked two late field goals as William & Mary edged Villanova 20-16 on Saturday.

When two Mark Hamilton field goals gave Villanova (1-4, 0-2) a 16-14 lead, William & Mary relied on their own kicker to seal victory.
After a nine-play, 53-yard William & Mary drive stalled at the Villanova 17-yard line, David Kuhn booted a 34-yard field goal to give the Tribe a 17-16 lead in the third quarter. Kuhn connected from 23 yards in the fourth quarter for the final margin
The win marked William & Mary’s first win at Villanova since 2000.
