Notes[edit]

  • b The official 2009 William & Mary football media guide provides a list of yearly results. It mentions that W&M claimed a "Southern Title" in 1926 but did not clarify what this meant. It does not indicate the Southern Conference, however, as William & Mary did not join the conference until 1936. Since the Indians were independent from any athletic conference affiliation at that point, this "championship" is not counted toward all-time titles won.
