HARRISONBURG, Va.-- The Richmond offense generated a season-low 118 total net yards, and the University of Richmond lost its second-straight game to a conference opponent, 31-7, to James Madison University.
The game, played Saturday afternoon at Bridgeforth Stadium, served as the Dukes' Homecoming game, and the home team likely pleased the sell-out crowd.
Richmond quarterback Aaron Corp was sacked seven times, and the offense as a whole was only able to pick up eight first downs.
"We didn't execute well enough especially on the offensive side of the ball to win the game," Richmond interim coach Wayne Lineburg said.
On defense, after shutting out the Dukes through the first quarter, the Spiders allowed almost 300 yards rushing despite JMU's star tailback, Dae'Quan Scott, suffering shoulder injury early in the second quarter.
"To cut off their running attack, we just needed to execute the schemes a little better," Richmond linebacker Darius McMillan said.
