Villanova 21, James Madison 20

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) -- DeQuese May scored on a 16-yard run with
1:21 left to lift Villanova to a 21-20 upset win over James Madison
on Saturday.

Matt Dicken added two touchdown runs for the Wildcats (5-5, 4-3
Atlantic 10), who forced two key fumbles -- including one at the end
of a punt return that put the Dukes deep in Villanova territory.

Justin Rascati threw for 181 yards and tossed touchdown passes
to Will Patrick and Charlie Newman to lead James Madison (8-2,
6-1), which came in with a seven-game win streak.

On Villanova's game-winning drive, the Wildcats were pushed back
to their own 10-yard line on a holding penalty, but Marvin
Burroughs completed passes of 20, 27 and 18 yards to set up May's
go-ahead scoring run.

Two costly errors on punt returns -- a fumble and a penalty --
helped Villanova stay in the game. L.C. Baker fumbled at the end of
a 56-yard punt return that Villanova recovered at its own 6-yard
line. And an illegal block nullified what would have been a
touchdown on another return. A fumble by Rascati ended another
fourth quarter drive at the Villanova 21.

David Rabil kicked a pair of 34-yard field goals for the Dukes,
who outgained Villanova 320-277.
