Our plans to travel to Harrisonburg, Va fell through, but UMass football didn't. After wandering in the wilderness for six quarters, UMass football returned.
Matty V will have a tough time picking three heroes in this game.
Kyle Havens was 15-19-163 yards and 2 TD's. If I'm reading the box score right, Kyle had one incompletion in the second half. Nice receiving games by Dan Sheeran, Julian Talley and Andrew Kervis.
The UMass running game returned with Jonathan Hernandez racking up 137 yards with a 4.9 yards/carry against the tough Duke defense.
Anthony Nelson had a scintillating 52 yard punt return.
The defense shut JMU out in the second half. Tyler Holmes had a big sack.
No mistakes on special teams. Caleb Violette was 2 for 2 on field goals.
Great effort by coaches and players. UMass write-up here.
The JMU website has video of the post game press conference as well as audio interviews from both the UMass and JMU sides.
Enjoy the win everyone!
