Game Breakdown: James Madison at Lehigh, 9/6/2014

We break down the James Madison game and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

The Dukes have only met Lehigh twice in their history.  One time was the “7th-and-goal” game in the I-AA playoffs.

The other was back in 1980, during one of the more stellar Engineer football seasons under head coach John Whitehead.

The Brown and White played a tough schedule, including Colgate, Army, and five teams that would, at one point, end up in the CAA: Delaware, Maine, Rhode Island, Northeastern, and, of course, JMU.

Lehigh went 9-0-2 that regular season, thanks to the efforts of WR Mark Yeager, one of the best wideouts in the small-college circuit.  The ties came against Colgate and Army, which meant the Engineers would win the Lambert Cup with ease.  They’d lose in the I-AA playoffs to Eastern Kentucky, coached by hall-of-famer Roy Kidd.

For fans of the Brown and White, however, the memory always goes back to those seven downs.
