Tribe turning it around

Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

After four losses to start their season, William & Mary is starting to figure it out.  The Tribe has back-to-back blow out wins, and look to extend its winning streak to three games at No. 4/5 James Madison on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. 

W&M enters Saturday's game having averaged nearly 35 points per contest and 396.5 ypg in its last two outings, while its defensive and special teams units have forced nine turnovers in the pair of wins.

James Madison currently owns a top-five national ranking and is undefeated against FCS competition this season, as its lone defeat came to West Virginia. The Dukes enter this weekend's contest leading the conference in both scoring defense (13.8) and rushing defense (102.2.).

In a series that dates back to 1978, JMU holds a 19-15 advantage in the previous 34 meetings. Each of the last two games have been tightly contested, as the Dukes have earned a pair of six-point wins.
