Jump to: navigation, search

The William & Mary Orange and White / Orange and Black / Indians football[a] teams represented the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. Now known as the William & Mary Tribe, the program was established in 1893. Their long-time football rival is the University of Richmond. Their annual meeting was dubbed the I-64 Bowl (renamed the Capital Cup starting in the 2009 season), so named for the highway connecting the two nearby schools.

Notes[edit]

  • a Between 1896 and 1909 their nickname was "Orange and White," deriving that name from the school's former colors (William & Mary now uses green and gold).[1] Since white uniforms dirtied too quickly, they became known as the "Orange and Black" from 1910 through 1916.[1] Between 1917 and 1977 they were known as the Indians, and throughout this period a man dressing up as a Native American would ride around on a pony along the sidelines during games.[1] This practice was discontinued when the outcry of stereotyping Native Americans as well as the use of a live animal became controversial.[1] Since the 1978 season William & Mary has adopted the nickname "Tribe."[1]
