James Madison dismisses RB from team

Harrisonburg, VA (Sports Network) - James Madison running back Scott Noble has been dismissed from the team for academic reasons.

Noble had one season of eligibility remaining after appearing in 10 games, with three starts, last season. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound redshirt junior from Baltimore was second on the team with 380 rushing yards and tied for the team high with 16 receptions for 134 yards. He rushed for three touchdowns.

Noble, who also made three starts in 2009, was suspended from last year's season-opening game against Morehead State for an undisclosed violation of team policy.

James Madison finished with a 6-5 record.
