The Tribe finished the season with a 6–5 overall record (5–4 in the A-10). After losing the season's first two games, William & Mary reeled off five straight victories, with the most impressive being a 30–13 win over #15-ranked Northeastern. They would stumble toward the end of the season, however, as they dropped three of their last four, including the I-64 Bowl against rival Richmond.
