AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - William & Mary wide receiver Rich Musinski caught 10 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns Saturday in a 31-10 win over Massachusetts.
The game was tied 10-10 at halftime, but William & Mary (1-0 A-10) scored 21 unanswered points in the second half while limiting the Minutemen (0-1 A-10) to 34 yards of offense and two first downs in the half.
UMass took a 3-0 lead on Doug White's 35-yard field goal on the first drive of the game, but the Tribe answered with a 15-yard touchdown from David Corley to Musinski.
