The College’s defense will not be able to slow JMU’s CAA-leading offense with its usual bend-but-don’t-break strategy. To keep the Tribe within striking distance, the College’s ball-hawking secondary, averaging 1.67 interceptions a game, must come up with some key turnovers.
Win the shootout
With the JMU and Tribe offensive units ranking first and fourth in the CAA in scoring, respectively, tomorrow’s game will be anything but a defensive struggle. For the College to have a shot at victory, senior quarterback Jake Phillips will have to be nearly perfect to outshoot JMU quarterback Rodney Landers. Expect Phillips to be ready.
