Last time out – JMU beat San Diego State 19-8 in the final non-conference game of the regular season. The Dukes come into CAA play as the clear favorite in the conference.
CAA expectations – JMU has a lull in the schedule following a recent stretch featuring consecutive games against top-10 teams. Without any ranked teams left on the schedule, it’ll be hard for the casual fan to get pumped until the NCAA Tournament. While the matchups in CAA play aren’t as exciting as many of the non-conference showdowns, the Dukes are likely licking their chops. The final six games of the season are all very winnable.
Up first – The Dukes face Delaware (6-5) today and Towson (2-8) on Sunday. The Tigers were ranked in preseason polls, but have fallen well short of expectations and only have two wins to their name.
