Having a top five running back on your team is always a good thing. That is exactly what the Hurricanes have in senior RB Tony James. James and WR Kenric Young were shut down week one by Columbia (2-0) but bounced back last week in a win over Eastside.
Madison, meanwhile, struggled with Eastern Christian (Md.) - falling 36-6 at home. It's been a while - a long while - since the Cowboys were beaten at home like that. It's about the same amount of time since Madison has lost back-to-back weeks.
For Gainesville to win, it must contain Madison's running attack, led by QB Akevious Williams and Eric Bright. The Cowboys run the veer and run it very well.
Madison has to keep James bottled up and not let him get loose. If James gets in a rhythm, it could be a very long night for the Cowboys.
