HARRISONBURG – Top-ranked James Madison used 474 rushing yards to roll past Norfolk State 75-14 on Saturday at Bridgeforth Stadium.
It was the second time this season JMU rushed for at least 400 yards in a single game.
Junior running back Trai Sharp carried nine times for 130 yards and a touchdown. Freshman running back Percy Ageyi-Obese had 103 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Johnson left the game in the second quarter with injury, though, and there is no official word on his status yet from JMU.
For a second straight game, the Dukes’ defense didn’t allow a touchdown as the Norfolk State scores came on a 33-yard fumble recovery and an 100-yard kickoff return.
With the win, JMU (3-0) extended the nation’s longest winning streak in Division I to 15 victories. The Dukes open their Colonial Athletic Association schedule next week against Maine.
Norfolk State drops to 0-3 on the year.
