WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) William & Mary defenders Jared Velasquez and Ivan Tagoe scored touchdowns in a 29-14 victory over Norfolk State on Saturday night.

Tagoe batted a Terrance Ervin pass and Velasquez returned it 39 yards to put the FCS-ranked Tribe (2-1) ahead 14-7 in the first quarter.

In the fourth quarter, DeAndre Houston-Carson blocked a field-goal attempt and Tagoe returned it 66 yards.
