LANCASTER, Pa. - The start time for the Nov. 5 football game between Franklin & Marshall College and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore has been moved up one hour to noon EDT.
The change was necessitated by the potential for Johns Hopkins to serve as host for the Centennial Conference men's and/or women's soccer championship final fours on Nov. 4-5-6. Johns Hopkins plays football, soccer, field hockey and lacrosse on its artificial surface at Homewood Field.
"I am very pleased that the athletic administrations and the head football coaches came together to suggest the time change," said Centennial Conference Executive Director Steve Ulrich. "One of the hallmarks of the Centennial Conference over our 19-year history is the cooperation among our member institutions and the desire to treat all sports equitably. This move recognizes the importance of our championship weekend for soccer and I appreciate the willingness of both schools to make this move."
