James Madison 28, Massachusetts 7

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) -- James Madison ran for 140 yards and four touchdowns after a scoreless first half Saturday and dealt Massachusetts its fourth straight loss, 28-7.

Justin Rascati scored on runs of 1 and 5 yards for the Dukes (4-1, 3-0 Atlantic 10), Raymond Hines added a 9-yard TD and Maurice Fenner had a late 25-yarder.

Massachusetts (2-4, 0-3) was limited to just 42 yards on the ground on 24 attempts and tried to make up for it with its passing game. Tim Day finished 28-for-52 for 220 yards and a touchdown, but also threw two interceptions and was sacked once.

James Madison had just 72 rushing yards -- and 88 total yards -- in the first half, but finished with 291 yards. Massachusetts had 262 yards and committed four turnovers.

Rascati, who was 11-for-17 for 79 yards with an interception, scored on a 1-yard run with 4:01 left in the third quarter to cap an 11-play, 96-yard drive for the game's first points. He made it 14-0 with 11:56 remaining, capping a 12-play, 63-yard march.

Hines, who had 123 yards on 12 carries, put the game out of reach with seven minutes left after Tony LeZotte's interception and 10-yard return to the Minutemen's 24. Himes ran for 15 yards on the next play, then took it the final 9 yards.

Fenner added 85 yards in 22 tires, including the touchdown with 1:14 left.

Mike Douglas scored the only Massachusetts touchdown on a 2-yard pass from Day.
