LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI football team scored one of the biggest wins in program history Saturday with a 14-13 upset of #10-ranked Furman University from Foster Stadium. The Southern Conference contest was the season opener for the Keydets.
VMI’s last win over a ranked opponent was in the 2002 season, a 27-16 victory over #18 Wofford College and the team’s last season-opening win was in the 2010 campaign.
VMI took a 14-13 lead with 17 seconds left in the third quarter on a three-play, 86-yard touchdown drive. Senior quarterback Reece Udinski completed a 57-yard pass to true freshman Rashad Raymond to set up a Udinski to Chance Knox touchdown strike from 19 yards out. Trey Rice knocked in the PAT to give the Keydets the lead.
