HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Cole Johnson matched his school-record of six touchdown passes and James Madison beat Towson 56-10 as the Dukes finished in a tie for the Colonial Athletic Association title.
The Dukes, ranked No. 2 in the FCS, tied for the league title with Villanova, which handed the Dukes their only loss, 28-27, this season. It’s the sixth conference title in seven years for JMU.
Johnson’s six touchdowns gave him a school single-season record of 32. Three of them went to Antwane Wells Jr., — a career-best for Wells — who had nine catches for 107 yards.
Jerry Howard Jr. had 30 carries for 162 yards rushing for Towson.
