Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

HARRISONBURG -- JMU's offense sputtered all day, but when the Dukes needed it the most it came up big.

The Dukes used an eight-play 79-yard drive to score the game-winning touchdown in a 13-10 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

JMU quarterback Justin Thorpe went 6-for-6 on the final drive, which began with 3:21 left in the game. Thorpe finished off the drive with a 9-yard touchdown run with 1:24 remaining in the game.

JMU's Dean Marlowe sealed the win with an interception on Towson's last drive. Thorpe finished the game with 116 yards passing.
