GRR: James Madison
James Madison upset St. Joseph’s 33-13 to secure a place in the Keystone Conference final on Sunday at Shippensburg University.
The game was much closer than the score might indicate, with St. Joe’s actually leading 13-12 with about 16 minutes to go. It was then that JMU went over for the go-ahead try.
The Keystone Conference has gone pretty much according to the form sheet with only one or two little hiccups this season, and now with the playoffs coming a few potential upsets rear their heads.
Eight of the ten Keystone teams are in the quarterfinals, and while the top two from each division would have to be favored, this is a perfect time for someone to slip up.
The University of Pittsburgh scored two tries in the final five minutes to come back to beat James Madison 31-27 in a crucial Keystone West matchup.
JMU, having moved up to DIAA from DII, was undefeated going into this game, as was Pitt.
Notre Dame College continues the programs independent DIAA schedule with a game against another team that has moved up from DII, James Madison.
