The Richmond Spiders are a college football team representing the University of Richmondmarker in Richmondmarker, Virginiamarker. Richmond is the current Division I Football Championship Subdivision champion. Richmond currently competes in the Colonial Athletic Association of the NCAA's Division I Football Championship Subdivision. Mike London, defensive coordinator for the University of Virginia and former Richmond player, was named the Spiders' head coach on January 19, 2008. On June 30, 2009, it was announced by the University of Richmond Athletic Association that Coach Mike London had agreed to a two-year extension of his original five year contract. This agreement will have London (Richmond '83) coaching his alma mater through the 2014 season.

In 2007, the Spiders advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision semifinals before falling to two-time defending national champion Appalachian State.

In 2008, #7 Richmond beat Eastern Kentucky, Appalachian State, and Northern Iowa to advance to the NCAA Division I Football Championship against Montana. Richmond beat UNI, 21-20. In the FCS National Championship Game on December 19, 2008, Richmond defeated Montana by a score of 24-7 to win the first NCAA national title for the University of Richmond in any sport. In 2009, Richmond became one of the 2 CAA teams (the other William & Mary) to beat a ACC team by beating the Duke BlueDevils.

Richmond's traditional rival in many sports is the College of William & Marymarker. Richmond and William & Mary have met 119 times since 1898, making the rivalry (sometimes referred to as "the South's oldest rivalry") the fourth most-played in Division I college football. Only Lafayette-Lehigh, Princetonmarker-Yalemarker, and Harvard-Yale have played more games. The winner of the annual W&M–Richmond match-up claims the Capital Cup (formerly the I-64 Trophy), which reflects the historical significance of the cities of Williamsburg and Richmond as the last two capitals of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
