West Virginia returns to action after an early bye week, as the Mountaineers take on James Madison at FedEx Field on Saturday afternoon.

The ninth-ranked Mountaineers defeated Marshall with ease in Week 1, scoring a staggering 69 points in a 69-34 win. Geno Smith completed 32-of-36 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns in the win, while Shawne Alston ran 16 times for 123 yards and a pair of scores. Both players will look to continue their 2012 success against an FCS opponent in James Madison.

Even though they're an FCS team, James Madison could pose some resistance against West Virginia. The Dukes are 2-0 entering play on Saturday, and have outscored opponents 97-10 in the process.

Since it's a game featuring an FBS and FCS team, and a top 10 team at that, the line on the game is off, and there is no over/under set for the game.

Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET from FedEx field. Televised coverage can be found on ROOT Sports.
