James Madison 34, Villanova 10

Trailing 10-6 midway through the third quarter, James Madison

erupted for four touchdowns – two each in the third and fourth

quarters – and pulled away from Villanova for a 34-10 victory

Saturday in Colonial Athletic Association play.

Jordan Anderson ran for three touchdowns for the Dukes (5-2,

3-1), two in the decisive second half. He scored on a 1-yard plunge

in the third quarter when James Madison took the lead for good, and

an 8-yard run in the fourth quarter to close the scoring. The Dukes

rushed for 253 yards, 19 yards more than Villanova’s total

offensive output.

Dustin Thomas’ 25-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Miles in the

second quarter gave the Wildcats (1-6, 0-4) an early lead. But in

the second half, James Madison redshirt freshman quarterback Jace

Edwards threw the first two touchdown passes of his career,

including an 80-yarder to Kerby Long.
