ORONO, Maine (AP) -- Justin Rascati completed 19 of 28 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-winning 23-yarder to D.D. Boxley with 47 seconds remaining, as James Madison defeated Maine 24-20 on Saturday.

Rascati also rushed for 60 yards and a 7-yard fourth quarter touchdown that pulled the Dukes (5-1, 4-0 Atlantic 10) to within striking distance at 20-17.

Maine (3-3, 1-2) had grabbed the lead with two third-quarter touchdowns after trailing 10-6 at halftime.

Marcus Williams rushed for 138 of his 166 yards in the second half and his touchdown at 8:23 of the third quarter put Maine ahead 13-10.

The Black Bears added another score at 4:28 when quarterback Ron Whitcomb found Christian Pereira in the end zone from 3 yards out to make it 20-10.

Whitcomb passed for 141 yards and two touchdowns but his two interceptions both led to James Madison touchdowns.

Boxley had 11 catches for 108 yards for the Dukes.
