James Madison shocks North Dakota State, ends the streak

James Madison has ended one of the most impressive streaks in recent college football memory.

On Friday night, the Dukes stunned FCS powerhouse North Dakota State, ending a remarkable five-year championship run with a 27-17 win. The Bison also had a 22-game FCS playoff win streak dating back to 2011.

With the win, James Madison will wait on the winner of Eastern Washington vs. Youngstown State to face off for the FCS Championship in Frisco, Texas on Jan. 7.

The Dukes offense was paced by running back Khalid Abdullah, who recorded 180 yards rushing, while quarterback Bryan Schor was responsible for all three of the JMU touchdowns through the air.

If JMU can build off of the North Dakota State upset and go on to win the title, it would be the second national title in program history and the first since 2004.

Eastern Washington and Youngstown State face off Saturday night in Cheney, Washington to determine the second half of the national championship.
