HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) – Bryan Schor threw for 371 yards and five touchdowns and fourth-seeded James Madison rolled into the FCS quarterfinals with a 55-22 win over New Hampshire on Saturday.
Schor completed 30 of 37 passes for a career-high 371 yards, fourth best in school history, and tied the school mark for touchdown passes for the second time.
The Dukes (11-1), who beat the Colonial Athletic Association rival Wildcats 42-39 in the regular season, host fifth-seeded Sam Houston State winner next weekend.
Schor, the CAA Player of the Year, threw three touchdowns and receiver Rashard Davis a TD on a trick play in a 28-point second quarter as the Dukes scored 31 straight points to lead 31-7 at the half.
After Dalton Crossman had his second TD run for the Wildcats (8-5) opening the fourth quarter, Brandon Ravenel returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown. Then Schor threw two more TDs and it was 52-15 entering the fourth quarter, a JMU record for playoff points.
Ravenel had eight receptions for 155 yards and Terrence Alls had seven for 126, his first 100-yard game this year, and both had two touchdowns.
