|1898 William & Mary Orange and White football|
|Head coach||W. J. King (2nd year)|
The 1898 season was significant because it marked the first meeting between William & Mary and the University of Richmond, which later became known as the I-64 Bowl (so named for the highway between the two nearby schools), then eventually as the Capital Cup. The Richmond–W&M rivalry is the fourth-longest played college football rivalry and, through the 2011 match-up, the schools have played each other 121 times. The Richmond Spiders football team won the inaugural contest 15–0.
