LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Adam Morgan had two interceptions to lead a strong defensive effort as Virginia Military Institute held off Presbyterian 17-7 Saturday in their Big South Conference opener.
Morgan had interceptions on the last Presbyterian drive of the first half and the first of the second.
The Keydets (2-3) forced four turnovers, two to snuff out the final Blue Hose drives.
On Presbyterian's last drive, Logan Staib intercepted Griffin at the VMI 10.
The Blue Hose, who had only 45 yards total offense in the first half, missed two straight third-quarter field goals with the score 10-0.
VMI's Eric Kordenbrock threw for 208 yards and a 29-yard TD to Dexter Bridge, and Jabari Turner had a career-high 71 yards with a 1-yard TD run.
