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
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.
