RICHMOND VS. JAMES MADISON WHAT TO WATCH
- Lehigh has lost seven straight games as a program dating back to 2019, and a 44-point loss at the hands of Villanova doesn't provide much confidence that they'll be able to snap their streak on the road in Richmond.
- Richmond rebounded from a season-ending loss to JMU last year with a Week 1 win over Howard, shutting out the Bison in three of four quarters on the way to a 38-14 victory. If they're to stack up against the best the CAA has to offer, beating a Lehigh team that was blown out by Villanova would be a good start. Richmond will play Villanova next week.
RICHMOND VS. JAMES MADISON PLAYERS TO WATCH
Richmond: QB Joe Mancuso. The senior quarterback put together a strong performance in Week 1 against Howard, throwing for 293 yards and two touchdowns while completing 25 of 34 pass attempts.
Lehigh: QB Cross Wilkinson. On the flip side, Wilkinson did not have the best game last week. He threw for just 134 yards to go along with three interceptions, further contributing to his team's rout at the hands of Villanova.
