HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Justin Thorpe threw two touchdown passes and ran for another as James Madison routed Alcorn State 42-3 Saturday night in the first meeting between the schools.
The James Madison (2-0) rushing attack made it an occasion to forget for the Braves (1-1), as Dae'Quan Scott led the Dukes with 107 yards rushing and two TDs on eight carries. Thorpe tallied 101 yards on the ground with nine carries, and also passed for 140 yards with an interception.
The Dukes, who have now outscored their two 2012 opponents by a total of 97-10, got out to a 28-0 halftime lead that put the game away early thanks in part to Thorpe. The James Madison quarterback ran for a 21-yard score and then connected with his running back Scott on a 10-yard TD -- both coming in the second quarter.
Darius Smith threw for 148 yards with an interception for Alcorn State.
