James Madison quarterback Drew Dudzik leaped near the end zone, was drilled by Montana's Craig Mettler (50) but got the ball across the goal line for two points in a Division I-AA semifinal last Friday in Harrisonburg, Va. Despite Dudzik's fourth-quarter effort, Montana won 35--27 and advanced to the title game against Richmond, which beat Northern Iowa 21--20 the next day in Cedar Falls.

The Cornhuskers (31--2) moved on to the national semifinals in Omaha, where they will face top-seeded Penn State (36--0), which hasn't lost a game all season.
