Series History:  Franklin & Marshall will do battle with McDaniel for the 47th time in a series that dates back to 1904. F&M has won each of the last nine meetings, including a pair of overtime games in Westminster.  The nine wins is the longest Diplomats' winning streak in the series. The Diplomats reeled off six-straight from 1984 to 1989 while McDaniel took the seven-straight meetings between 1997 and 2003.  

The Last Meeting:  Franklin & Marshall defeated McDaniel 35-10 last year and pushed their winning streak over the Green Terror to nine straight games with the victory. 

Frank Strumolo finished with a game-high 77 yards on 17 rushes and two scores, Lamont Jackson had 45 yards and Scott LaValva ended the day with 41 yards on the ground. 

E.J. Schneider threw for 178 yards on 12-for-24 passing.  Paul McGann hauled in a game-high 86 yards, while Jordan Zackery finished with 55. 

McDaniel's  Joe Rollins came into the game leading the conference in rushing with 115 yards per game, but the F&M defense held him to just 50 yards rushing. 

Jonathan Struss and Chris DeStefano led the F&M defense with seven stops each while Struss picked up two tackles for a loss from his cornerback position.  Brenden Wengerter had six (4s, 2a), one TFL and one fumble recovery.
