Towson 48 – Richmond 32
The Spiders couldn’t keep pace with the Terrance West and the #6 team in the FCS yesterday as they fell to 0-4 in conference play. West, Towson’s junior running back, put on another show. The Baltimore, MD native rushed for an insane 272 yards and four touchdowns, and also added a six yard receiving touchdown to post five of the Tigers’ seven touchdowns. Towson’s other two scores came on the defensive side of the ball in a dominating effort on the road.
William & Mary 17 – James Madison 7
Things looked good for the James Madison Dukes when they jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, but it was all downhill from there. The William & Mary Tribe used an excellent defensive effort to prevail in what was seemingly a pretty ugly game. JMU had a chance in the fourth quarter, but a 90-yard interception return by W&M’s Jared Velasquez for a touchdown sealed the win for the Tribe.
