UConn football crushed by James Madison, 44-6

UConn football visited the James Madison Dukes and left with a 44-6 drubbing at the hands of the home team, an undefeated squad currently ranked No. 21 in the country.

JMU overcame a slow start, leading just 3-0 after one quarter, before getting its first touchdown in the second quarter and breaking it wide open with 17 points in the third quarter. UConn’s offense didn’t do much, gaining fewer than 100 yards in each quarter, while its defense gave up a lot of big plays — James Madison finished with an impressive 8.4 yards per play.

The Huskies gained 56 yards on their first drive but then had a five-play turnover on downs followed by a four-and-out before notching a field goal that made it 13-3 in the second quarter.
