NEWARK, Del. (AP)Omar Cuff ran for 101 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead Delaware to a 37-34 victory over James Madison in a Colonial Athletic Conference game.

Delaware (5-1 CAA, 8-1 overall) overcame a 20-16 deficit with back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter. Cuff's third TD, an eight-yard run with 12:50 left in the game, gave the Blue Hens a 37-27 advantage, capping an 11-play, 78-yard drive. But

The Dukes (4-2, 6-3), who had 403 rushing yards, closed within 37-34 on Rodney Landers six-yard scoring run with 8:12 remaining.
