AMHERST, Mass. -- Jamaris Sanders returned a fumble 38-yards for seven of James Madison's 10 points off turnovers in a 17-14 win over Massachusetts on Saturday.
Sanders stripped the ball from Massachusetts' Tony Nelson to give the Dukes (5-5, 3-4 Colonial Athletic Association) a 10-0 lead with 1:59 left in the first quarter.
Earlier in the first quarter, Jon Williams recovered a fumble to give James Madison the ball on the Minutemen (5-5, 3-4) 6-yard line. Dixon Wright connected on the resulting 20-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead.
The Dukes, led by Arthur Moats with 11 tackles, including 2.5 for loss and 1.5 sacks, held Massachusetts to 247 yards of offense and forced three turnovers.
James Madison's Scott Noble had a career-high 105 yards on 29 carries in the Dukes first win at Massachusetts since 1987.
Tony Nelson rushed for 115 yards on 18 carries for the Minutemen.
With starting quarterback Thomas Sirk out indefinitely with a torn Achilles, Duke will turn to Parker Boehme to lead the offense.
