Kevin Parks, Virginia make short work of William & Mary

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Kevin Parks rushed for 114 yards and three touchdowns and Robert Randolph kicked four field goals to lead Virginia to a 40-3 romp over William & Mary on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

The Cavaliers also got a big boost from their much-maligned defense, which held the Tribe to 169 yards of offense and produced two turnovers that led to 10 points. The Tribe converted only 2 of 14 third-down situations.

Virginia's Michael Rocco, making his first career start, completed his first 11 passes and finished 21-of-29 for 174 yards.

William & Mary was unable to cross midfield until 8 minutes remained in the game. The Tribe used three quarterbacks who combined to complete only 11 of 34 passes for 121 yards and one interception.

A 34-yard field goal by Drake Kuhn with 4:34 left accounted for the Tribe's only points.

A 97-yard drive on Virginia's first possession of the second half took the wind out of the Tribe and gave the Cavaliers a 20-0 lead when Parks scored on a 1-yard run. The Cavaliers added another touchdown by Parks and a field goal to make it 30-0 after three quarters.

The Cavaliers led 13-0 at halftime, thanks in part to the accurate arm of Rocco, a sophomore who was 14-of-18 in the first half for 92 yards.

When Virginia's opening drive stalled at the Tribe's 15, Randolph booted the first of his four field goals, a 32-yarder. He later added a 48-yarder on the final play of the opening half, along with 26- and 42-yarders in the second half.

The Cavaliers also scored on a 19-yard touchdown run by Parks midway through the second quarter. Sharing the running duties with junior Perry Jones, the redshirt freshman accounted for 78 of his rushing yards in the first half.

Virginia outgained the Tribe 212-52 yards in the first half, allowing William and Mary only four first downs.
