In 2008, #7 Richmond beat Eastern Kentucky, Appalachian State, and Northern Iowa to advance to the NCAA Division I Football Championship against Montana. In the FCS National Championship Game on December 19, 2008, they defeated Montana 24–7 to win the first team NCAA national title for the University of Richmond in any sport.
Richmond's traditional rival in many sports is the College of William & Mary. Richmond and William & Mary have met 123 times since 1898, making the rivalry the fourth most-played in Division I college football. Only Lafayette-Lehigh, Princeton-Yale, and Harvard-Yale have played more games. The winner of the annual W&M–Richmond match-up claims the Capital Cup, which reflects the historical significance of the cities of Williamsburg and Richmond as the last two capitals of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Richmond scored a 13–10 victory in 2009's inaugural Capital Cup, with kicker Andrew Howard making a 48-yard field goal as time expired.
