NORFOLK, Va. -- After coming back to tie the game at 28 early in the fourth quarter, University of Richmond was unable to score any more points, falling to Old Dominion University, 42-28, the Spiders' sixth straight defeat. Richmond trailed through most of the game, going down 8-0 two minutes into the game on a 14-yard pass from ODU quarterback Taylor Heinicke to receiver Larry Pinkard, but tied the game three minutes into the fourth quarter when redshirt freshman receiver Stephen Barnette caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Aaron Corp. On the touchdown grab, Barnette went high into the air and pulled the ball down with one hand with a defender on top of him.

Spiders lose chance at playoffs with loss to Maine

The beginning to the denouement of Richmond's season started with a Spider touchdown. For a season that started with such promise, it was a fitting way to go down.

Spiders suffer second-straight loss, fall 31-7 to JMU

HARRISONBURG, Va.-- The Richmond offense generated a season-low 118 total net yards, and the University of Richmond lost its second-straight game to a conference opponent, 31-7, to James Madison University. The game, played Saturday afternoon at Bridgeforth Stadium, served as the Dukes' Homecoming game, and the home team likely pleased the sell-out crowd. Richmond quarterback Aaron Corp was sacked seven times, and the offense as a whole was only able to pick up eight first downs. "We didn't execute well enough especially on the offensive side of the ball to win the game," Richmond interim coach Wayne Lineburg said. On defense, after shutting out the Dukes through the first quarter, the Spiders allowed almost 300 yards rushing despite JMU's star tailback, Dae'Quan Scott, suffering shoulder injury early in the second quarter. "To cut off their running attack, we just needed to execute the schemes a little better," Richmond linebacker Darius McMillan said.
