James Madison (5-5, 2-5) recorded just 266 yards of total offense – all coming on the ground – as the Dukes attempted just one pass. Redshirt freshman wide receiver Dae’Quan Scott led the Dukes with 125 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while Jamal Sullivan piled up 121 rushing yards.

Senior quarterback Mike Callahan led the Tribe’s (7-3, 5-2) offensive attack and completed 24-of-40 attempts for 250 yards with a pair of touchdowns. Sophomore wide receiver Ryan Moody totaled a career-high eight receptions for 122 yards with a touchdown, while Payton Award candidate running back Jonathan Grimes rushed for a team-high 70 yards.

W&M capped off the contest’s opening drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass from Callahan to junior tight end Alex Gottlieb. The nine-play, 51-yard drive began after a 41-yard kickoff return by junior wide receiver Ryan Woolfolk and was keyed by Grimes, who carried the ball six times for 30 yards. Callahan was efficient leading W&M into the end zone, as he completed all three of his pass attempts.

The Tribe extended its lead to 10-0 with a 22-yard field goal by Drake Kuhn with 4:26 remaining in the second quarter. The 12-play, 74-yard drive lasted 7:21 and was efficiently engineered by Callahan, who was 4-of-4 for 60 yards.

James Madison answered with a touchdown on its following drive when Scott found the end zone on a 16-yard run. The seven-play drive covered 67 yards.

After forcing a three-and-out on W&M’s next possession, the Dukes took their first lead of the game, 14-10, when Josh Roach blocked David Miller’s punt and D.J. Bryant returned it 2 yards for a touchdown with just 0:24 remaining in the half.

Although JMU led at halftime, the Tribe outgained the Dukes, 151-128, in the opening 30 minutes.

The Dukes opened the second half with a 14-play, 71-yard drive that lasted 8:25 and culminated with a 3-yard touchdown run by Scott.

The Tribe answered with a scoring drive of its own, as Kuhn kicked a 31-yard field goal with 2:47 left in the third quarter to cut the margin to 21-13.

After B.W. Webb recovered the ensuing onsides kick attempt, the Tribe found the end zone moments later on a 17-yard pass from Callahan to Moody over the middle. Callahan then connected with D.J. Mangas on the two-point conversion to even the score at 21-21. Callahan completed 4-of-5 passes on the drive, totaling 41 yards.

JMU retook the lead on its next drive, however, when Scott scored on a 30-yard touchdown run with 12:09 remaining.

After forcing JMU to a three-and-out on its following possession, the Tribe took over inside its own 1-yard line with 4:40 remaining but was unable to get a first down. Miller then took a safety on the fourth down, which put JMU ahead, 30-24, with 3:26 left to play.

W&M then held JMU to a three-and-out on its next possession, which was highlighted by a 3-yard TFL by Thompson on a third-and-five at the Dukes’ own 39.

After taking over at its own 36-yard line with 2:33 remaining, the Tribe drove to the Dukes’ 35-yard line before an 8-yard sack by Peter Rose with 1:42 showing forced a third-and-18.
