UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND -- Senior WR Tre Gray had another 100-yard afternoon, but Richmond fell to Massachusetts 28-7 Saturday at Robins Stadium.
Gray finished with 10 catches for 105 yards and his 13th career touchdown as the Cuero, Texas native continues to add to the Richmond
career records for receptions and yards he set last week. He was honored before the game for becoming the Spiders' all-time leading receiver.
Gray has recorded five of his six career 100-yard games this season.
The Richmond defense did its part, holding the visitors to just seven points in the game's final 45 minutes after the Spiders turned the ball over a season-high six times. Richmond, which leads CAA Football in Red Zone defense, allowed just three scores on UMass' seven trips in the Red Zone.
The Minutemen (5-3) sprinted out to a 21-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. UMass QB Kellen Pagel finished 14-of-25 for 192 yards and a touchdown, while RB Jonathan Hernandez rolled up 103 yards and scored three times.
Gray's six-yard TD from senior QB Aaron Corp capped a 13-play, 80-yard drive with four minutes left in the second quarter that cut the deficit to 21-7. But three of Richmond's next four drives ended in interceptions.
Corp was 22-of-39 passing for 196 yards, while junior QB
John Laub was six-of-13 for 102 yards.
Richmond (3-5, 0-5) returns to action next Saturday at Old Dominion. Kickoff at Foreman Field in Norfolk is set for 2 p.m.
