ETSU drops first game of season to reigning FCS champs
Bryan Schor threw for a career-tying five touchdowns and James Madison, the defending national champion and top-ranked team in the FCS, cruised to a 52-10 victory over East Tennessee State on Saturday night. The Dukes (2-0), who handled East Carolina of the FBS 34-14 last week, have won 14 straight games, the longest active streak in FBS and FCS. James Madison scored touchdowns on its first three drives and held the Buccaneers (1-1) to 33 yards offense in the first half in taking a 28-7 lead, giving up a touchdown on Domenique Williams' 33-yard interception return with 1:11 left in the half. Williams is the first ETSU player to score on an interception since 2003. ETSU went three-and-out on its first possession of the second half before the Dukes' John Miller returned the ensuing punt 42 yards for a 35-7 lead. Schor finished 25 of 33 for 304 yards passing with an interception. He threw two touchdown passes each to Ishmael Hyman and Riley Stapleton and another to David Eldridge. Cardon Johnson who ran for a career-high 265 yards against East Carolina, scored the other touchdown, rushing for just 25 yards on 10 carries.
