CAA champion James Madison piled up a program playoff record 623 yards of total offense and hammered 14th-ranked Monmouth 66-21 in the second round of the FCS Playoffs.

The victory was JMU's 12th straight since its lone setback at West Virginia to open the season.

CAA Offensive Player of the Year Ben DiNucci completed 21-of-25 passes for 273 yards and two scores and ran for 66 yards and two more touchdowns, totaling a career-best 339 yards of offense — and his 84 percent completion clip was a school playoff record.

As a team, the Dukes ran for 332 yards, led by Jawon Hamilton and Percy Agyei-Obese, who combined for 185 yards. Agyei-Obese also matched a career-high with three scores on the ground.

John Daka enjoyed a standout performance defensively, leading the team with six tackles, 3.5 TFL, a pair of sacks, a blocked punt, a forced fumble, and a partridge in a pear tree. Daka now owns the Dukes' single-season record for sacks with 14.5.

JMU moves on to the FCS quarterfinal round, as No. 6 Northern Iowa draws the unenviable task of making the trip to Harrisoburg, Va., to face the Dukes. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 PM ET and the game will be available for viewing on ESPN2.
