BLACKSBURG, Va. — Drew Dudzik ran for two touchdowns and threw for another Saturday and James Madison handed No. 13 Virginia Tech its second loss in six days, 21-16.
Dudzik scored on second-half runs of seven and 12 yards as the Dukes (2-0) became only the second team from the Football Championship Subdivision to beat the Hokies. Richmond did it in 1985, a year after the Spiders dropped down to the Football Championship Subdivision.
The Hokies (0-2) began the season with national championship aspirations, but the offense that was supposed to be their strength did less against the Dukes than against No. 3 Boise State on Monday night. They lost that game 33-30 on a TD with 1:09 remaining.
