1898[edit]

The 1898 season was significant because it marked the first meeting between Richmond and The College of William & Mary, which later became known as the I-64 Bowl (so named for the highway between the two nearby schools). The Richmond-W&M rivalry is the fourth-longest played college football rivalry and, through the 2009 match-up, the schools have played each other 119 times. Richmond won the inaugural contest 15–0.
