JAMES MADISON vs. VILLANOVA WHAT TO WATCH

Ahead of the 29th meeting between these two squads, James Madison leads the all-time series against Villanova 17-11 and it's been quite one-sided in favor of the Dukes recently. JMU has won the last five meetings, with the last four sporting double-digit margins of victory. The last meeting saw James Madison force four turnovers and score 21 fourth-quarter points en route to a 38-24 win. 

 

Redshirt senior quarterback Cole Johnson has been on a tear this season in the passing game, notching 1,127 yards through the air and 14 touchdowns. But watch for the defensive impact out of JMU linebacker Dimaonte Tucker-Dorsey, who made the game-saving INT against New Hampshire.
