Postgame Notes: #20 Richmond 11, #8 UMass 10
Oct. 16, 2010
The crowd of 16,421 is the 14th largest all-time at UMass. It was the 11th of more than 15,000 since 2004.
Andrew Krevis scored his third-career touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Kyle Havens in the second quarter. Ironically, it was his first-ever against an FCS team, as he first two TDs came at Kansas State and at Michigan.
Mike Mele set his career-high in tackles for the second game in a row with 14. He had set a new high with 13 at Towson in UMass' last game on Oct. 2.
Anthony Nelson had at least five catches in a game for the sixth time in as many games this year with six catches for 43 yards.
Julian Talley had the longest punt return of his career with a 32-yarder in the first quarter.
Mike Lee set a career-high with six tackles.
Charles Thompson had a career-high with five tackles and had his first-career sack (for four yards).
UMass is now 15-4 in its last 19 homecoming games dating to 1992.
UMass has won 26 of its last 30 games at McGuirk Stadium dating to the start of the 2006 season.
Richmond did not complete a pass in the game until its final drive, which began with 1:51 left in regulation.
If Richmond had not completed a pass and didn't gain any passing yardage, it would have tied a UMass opponent record for fewest passing yards (0) and completions (0). Both Harvard in 1960 and Florida A&M in the 1978 NCAA Championship game did not complete a pass and did not gain a yard through the air.
The Richmond safety was posted by a UMass opponent, on a snap that went over punter Caleb Violette's head in the first quarter, since Aug. 30, 2008 by Albany.
