James Madison Dukes (13-1)


FCS Playoff Review: James Madison 17, Northern Iowa 0

The Score - No. 2 seed James Madison (13-1) beat Northern Iowa (10-5) 17-0 in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs.

Story Line - UNI, whose injury-riddled offense managed only two offensive touchdowns in three playoff games, was suffocated by James Madison's defense, managing just 114 yards - the second-fewest of coach Mark Farley's 19 seasons - while getting shut out by an FCS opponent for the first time since it fell 38-0 to Montana in the 2001 national semifinals. Making it worse, the Dukes' offense lived in UNI territory. Quarterback Ben DiNucci was quite efficient in the first half, throwing for a first-quarter touchdown to Brandon Polk (a 15-yarder) for the only points the CAA champ needed.

Game Ball - Give it to JMU's entire defense while noting a standout at each level: defensive end John Daka (two of the Dukes' five sacks against UNI's Will McElvain, forced fumble), linebacker Dmitri Holloway (team-high eight tackles, including 3½ for loss) and safety D'Angelo Amos (three tackles, forced fumble, fumble recovery). The Dukes didn't allow UNI to cross midfield until 1:29 remained in the game.
