For all the turnover trouble the Spiders (3-0) had in last week’s home opener against Wagner, they displayed none of the same weaknesses in Saturday’s 34-19 win against the VMI Keydets (0-3). Miraculously, the Spiders had exactly zero turnovers, or exactly five fewer than last week.
The Richmond Spiders narrowly won a nail-biter over the visiting JMU Dukes at Robins Stadium on Saturday. Reinforced by a stalwart defense, the Spiders had just enough offense to sneak in yet another overtime win to move to 5-4 and 3-3 in the CAA.

The Richmond Spiders scored early and often against the visiting Coastal Carolina Chanticleers at Robins Stadium on Saturday. The final score of 41-19 is a bit misleading as the Chanticleers pulled within 8 points early in the 4th quarter, primarily by breaking a couple big plays against an otherwise tight defense. The Spider defenders salvaged the game by putting on a clinic for the final 13 minutes.
