Flashback of the JMU rivalry – Jacobi Green reflects on the college game day

Quarterback Kyle Lauletta had an amazing game herself. He threw for the best 415 yards of his career, now ranked fourth all-time for a single game. Wide receiver Brian Brown caught seven balls for 204 yards, finishing fifth in school history. Brown became the first Richmond receiver since John Henry in 1986 to amass more than 200 yards through the air.

Green finished his Spider career in fifth place all-time in program history with 2,969 career yards on 547 carries from 2012-15. He scored 28 touchdowns on the ground, finishing fourth in a Spider career. His 21 lavish touchdowns in 2015 – five of them against the Dukes – are still considered the most in a single season in program history.
