James Madison dreams of a repeat comes to an end

WASHINGTON — James Madison took the field against North Dakota State riding a 26-game win streak.

That ended with the final whistle of the Football Championship Subdivision championship game, as the Dukes lost 17-13.

The loss was the first loss to an FCS opponent in head coach Mike Houston’s two seasons with the school.

James Madison’s 25-game winning streak was the second longest in FCS history and was the longest active streak in NCAA football.
