Associated Press

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Jake Phillips threw four touchdowns to lead William & Mary to a 42-12 victory over Norfolk State on Saturday night.

The Tribe (2-1) took a 21-3 lead in the second quarter after David Caldwell's 66-yard touchdown return off a blocked field goal, making it the first special teams score since 1996.

William & Mary pushed its lead to 28-3 in the third on Phillips' 32-yard touchdown pass to D.J. McAulay, who leads the Tribe with five touchdowns.

The Spartans (2-2) converted only three of 18 third downs, giving up 337 total yards and throwing four interceptions.

The game was only the third between the two schools, about 45 minutes apart. William and Mary won both previous games in 1977 and 1985.
