ESPN’s College GameDay heading to James Madison on Oct. 24

Sunday October 18th, 2015

FCS school James Madison will host ESPN’s College Gameday this Saturday.

GameDay is making the trip to Harrisonburg, Va., for a matchup between the FCS’s No. 13 Richmond Spiders and the No. 5 Dukes. This is the show’s first trip to a non-FBS game this season, and first since the Yale vs. Harvard game last year.

The Spiders are 5–1, with their only loss coming in Week 1 to Maryland. Richmond and James Madison are undefeated in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Earlier this season, the Dukes upset SMU with a last-minute touchdown.
