Game Notes

Last Week

Franklin & Marshall defeated Dickinson 28-17 Saturday afternoon during TrueBlue Weekend to keep the Wagon Trophy in Lancaster. The Diplomats' defense was the story of the game as they limited the Red Devils to just three net rushing yards in the contest. The defense also forced three interceptions, including a 43-yard pick-six by Matt Scully in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.

Ty Tremba threw for 117 yards and tallied a touchdown through the air, while also carrying for 76 yards and two rushing scores. Tremba's only touchdown pass of the day was a 26-yard completion to Gary Lewis who pulled down the heave and fell across the goal line for the score. Read the recap here.

Last Time

The Diplomats fell to No. 17 Muhlenberg 27-10 last season. Jack O' Hearen caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from Logan Clouse to get F&M in the endzone during the end of the second quarter. Laurence Miller also chipped in a 19-yard field goal in the contest. Read the recap here.

The last time the Diplomats beat the Mules was during the 2017 season, where F&M came out on top 17-14 in the final game at Sponaugle-Williamson Field. Tanner Erisman '18 threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns in the win. K.J. Pretty '18 racked up 104 receiving yards and caught both of Erisman's touchdown throws in the contest. Read the recap here.

Muhlenberg Team Preview

Muhlenberg has won two of its last three games, with its only loss coming in a 34-27 defeat at Johns Hopkins. Quarterback Joe Repetti leads the CC in passing touchdowns (25), total passing yards (1,805), and passing yards per game (257.9). Wide receivers Michael Feaster and James Nye are downfield threats that will trouble any secondary in the CC. Feaster averages 68.9 yards per game with four touchdown receptions this season, while Nye averages 62.3 yards per game with eight touchdown catches this fall. On defense, safety John Lohrer leads the team in solo tackles (37) and interceptions (three).
