Eastern Falls in NCAA Playoffs

Nov 26, 2011

A field goal with one second remaining in the game lifted James Madison over Eastern Kentucky University in the Football Championship Series playoffs.  The 35 yard kick by J-M-U’s Cameron Starke into a stiff wind capped a comeback of 13 straight points.

E-K-U led 17-7 with 5:55 remaining in the third quarter.  Junior Matt Denham led the Colonels with 125 rushing yards.  Eastern finished the season at seven and five.  James Madison takes an eight and four record into next weekend’s game against number two seed, North Dakota State.
