WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Shon Mitchell ran for a late touchdown and pulled in the 2-point conversion pass that gave William & Mary a 25-22 win over Albany Saturday afternoon.

The Great Danes (2-3, 0-2) extended their lead to 22-10 in the fourth quarter but a touchdown pass from Mitchell to Dedmon cut it to 22-17 with 5:17 to play.
