JMU began the go-ahead drive from its own 49 with 1:05 to play following Delaware's botched 5-yard punt. Rashard Davis grabbed a 23-yard pass from Bryan Schor and Khalid Abdullah pulled down a 16-yarder, setting up Ravenel's game-winner. The JMU defense then recovered a Delaware fumble on the final play.
Schor, in his second start at quarterback, threw for 193 yards and ran in an earlier score from the 3 for James Madison (8-2, 5-2 Colonial). Cardon Johnson had a 48-yard touchdown run and Ryan Maglio kicked a short field goal.
