LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Geno Smith completed 34 of 39 passes for 411 yards and five touchdowns Saturday, and No. 9 West Virginia rolled to a 42-12 win over James Madison.

Smith set the school's career passing yardage record, topping Marc Bulger.

Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin both had 100 yards receiving before halftime for the Mountaineers, who improved to 2-0 and are 13-0 all time against FCS schools.

Bailey finished with 173 yards on 13 catches and three touchdowns. Austin had 113 yards on 11 receptions and one score.

The Dukes upset then-No. 13 Virginia Tech two years ago, but they never challenged the Mountaineers. They fell to 2-1.

The Mountaineers hosted the game at the Washington Redskins stadium to help maintain an East Coast profile now that they've moved to the Big 12.
