It’s taken a while, but we’ve finally gotten over the simple fact that our JUM Dukes lost a football game to that other Duke. Since then, the now #1 Dukes have done little wrong.

Saturday, Scotty McGee scored on a 69-yard punt return with 1 second remaining to lift top-ranked JMU to a heart-stopping 38-31 win over No. 5 Richmond.

J. Mad U. (6-1, 4-0 Colonial Athletic Association) narrowly escaped becoming the third Football Championship Series No. 1 team to lose this season.

The Dukes tied the game at 31 with 59 seconds remaining on an 8-yard run by Eugene Holloman and Rodney Landers' conversion pass to Griff Yancey. That’s 14 pionts in 58 seconds. Yike.
There were five lead changes in the game.
