Game Notes - Week 5: Dickinson at Franklin & Marshall
Game 5: Dickinson at Franklin & Marshall
Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 1:00 PM
at Franklin & Marshall, Lancaster, Pa.
Series History: The series started in Carlisle on October 30, 1889, with a 10-0 Dickinson win. The teams gathered again on November 28th of that year, with F&M posting a 22-0 shutout. The Diplomats lead the series 59-39-3, but Dickinson has won 19 of the last 22 meetings. The series is the longest (102 games) and oldest (1889) in the Conference.
The Wagon: Since 1963, the F&M Diplomats and Dickinson Red Devils have played for a model of the wagon that transported both teams to play each other in the two 1889 meetings. A gift of F&M Athletic Director J. Shober Barr and Dickinson A.D. Dave Eavenson, the trophy, created by Amish craftsmen in 1963, is meant to symbolize the friendly gridiron rivalry between the two institutions. F&M holds a 25-21 advantage since the inception.
