Game 4: Franklin & Marshall (2-1, 1-1 CC) at Juniata (1-2, 0-2 CC)
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Series History: Saturday's game marks the ninth time these schools have convened on the gridiron and the fifth time since Juniata attained associate membership status in the Centennial Conference. F&M has won all five meetings since the Eagles have landed in the league. Prior to that, the home team had won each meeting. F&M's 27-12 win in Huntingdon in 2007, rekindled the rivalry after 21 years and ended the home team dominance. The first two games were played in Lancaster - 61 years apart. The Diplomats won the first game between the schools played back on October 18, 1924 by a 27-0 margin. It wasn't until September 14, 1985 that the institutions reconvened again on Sponaugle-Williamson for a 21-0 Diplomats victory. The following year in Huntingdon, the Eagles scored their first points against F&M, picking up a 21-11 win on September 13.Series Record: F&M 7-1 First Meeting: Oct 18, 1924 (F&M 27-0) Last Meeting: Sept. 24, 2011 at F&M In Lancaster: F&M 5-0 In Huntingdon: F&M 2-1 In CC Play: F&M 5-0 Last F&M Win: Sept. 24, 2011 (40-14) Last JC Win: Sept. 13, 1986 (21-11) Current Series Streak:F&M +5
