The Tribe took an ego-bruising loss against Virginia two weeks ago, but they kept their chin up and bounced back last week. William & Mary was the clear victor by a 38-10 margin over Colgate. Colgate can consider this payback for the 23-nothing defeat they dealt the Tribe the last time the teams encountered one another Sept. of last year.
Meanwhile, after soaring to 48 points the game before, East Carolina faltered in their game last week. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 42-10 punch to the gut against Navy. East Carolina was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28-3.
William & Mary’s win lifted them to 2-1 while East Carolina’s defeat dropped them down to 1-2. We’ll see if the Tribe can repeat their recent success or if the Pirates bounce back and reverse their fortune.
The Pirates are a big 12-point favorite against the Tribe.
Vegas was right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 12-point spread, and stayed right there.
