The University of Richmond football team has not been able to win close games this season before Saturday's 46-43 win at Delaware (7-4, 4-3). The Spiders had lost the five games that have been decided by seven points or fewer this season.
Richmond (5-6, 3-4 CAA) led Saturday's game by as much as 19 points in the second half and did not trail until Delaware running back Andrew Pierce scored on an 11-yard run with 45 seconds left, giving the Blue Hens a 43-39 lead.
The Spiders looked doomed to lose another close game, but Richmond quarterback Michael Strauss led a 75-yard drive that concluded with a three-yard touchdown reception by sophomore Reggie Diggs to give Richmond the victory.
"They brought that blitz on that last play," Strauss said, "and right when I saw them come, I knew I had that one-on-one on the slant."
Richmond defensive lineman Kerry Wynn said a lot of people could have written the Spiders off once they fell behind, but Strauss' ability to lead the offense on the game-winning drive said a lot about him.
Strauss led Richmond's offense, completing 35 of his 46 pass attempts for a school-record 543 yards and five touchdowns.

Zachary Jesse, a third-year student at the University of Richmond School of Law, has been involved with the Moot Court Board, repeatedly served as a justice for the Law School Honor Council and is a recipient of the law school's most prestigious, $30,000 John Marshall scholarship.
He is also a registered sex offender who pled guilty to aggravated sexual battery in 2004.
It is unclear why a registered sex offender was admitted on scholarship to the law school when it is unlikely that someone with that offense would be allowed to practice law in Virginia.
1914 was a big year for the University of Richmond. The school moved from its downtown location to the current campus, Westhampton College was founded and in November, students published the first issue of The Collegian, making the university's weekly, student-run newspaper nearly 99 years old.
Steve Nash, the senior research scholar and professor in the journalism department, has shared a role as a faculty adviser for The Collegian with Michael Spear, the department chair, since the 1980s.
Nash said when he had arrived at Richmond there had been no type writers in the journalism department.
Citizens of Virginia elected Democrat Terry McAuliffe as governor in Tuesday's election, choosing him over Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Libertarian Robert Sarvis.
Governor of Virginia will be Terry McAuliffe's first elective office. The former chairman of the Democratic National Committee gained stature through his work leading two Clinton presidential campaigns: Bill's in 1996 and Hillary's in 2008.
Although Democrat Terry McAuliffe won the Virginia gubernatorial election, Democrat Ralph Northam won the lieutenant governor race and Republican Mark Obenshain will be the next attorney general, disillusionment was the big winner on Tuesday.
Even though the gubernatorial election in Virginia was significant for the state and for the country, it held special value for a few University of Richmond students who voted for the first time.
The result was too close to call for most of the night, and the candidates fell into what Kerri O'Brien of ABC News in Richmond called on her Twitter feed a "[s]tatistical dead heat." Just as much of the Virginia electorate was split on whom to vote for, three Richmond freshmen each chose to vote for a different candidate.
The crowd was small for the election-viewing party in the Alice Haynes Room at Tyler Haynes Commons.
