RICHMOND, Va. - James Madison running back Dae'Quan Scott (Staunton, Va./Robert E. Lee) has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced today. This is the third time in his career he has garnered the league's weekly offensive honor, having picked it up twice last year, and the fourth time he has earned a league weekly award overall.

Scott played just 27 minutes in a 42-3 win over Alcorn State, but it was enough time to account for 108 rushing yards, his ninth career 100-yard game, and two touchdowns on just eight carries for the Dukes. The junior also hauled in five catches for 39 yards and a touchdown. He opened the scoring for JMU with a 1-yard run and then followed up with a season-long 67-yard scamper to put the Dukes up 14-0 in the first quarter. He then added a 10-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Justin Thorpe late in the first half that gave Madison a 28-0 halftime lead.

In playing in just five quarters of the first two games due to the significant lead for JMU in each, Scott still has a team-high 180 yards on 20 carries (9.0 yards per carry) and three touchdowns.He has also has a JMU high eight receptions for 90 yards (11.2 yards per catch) and a pair of scores.

Next Saturday, JMU will travel to Landover, Md. to face West Virginia, ranked eighth in the FBS national polls. The Virginia 529 Classic will be held at 4:30 p.m.  at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins.
