The 23rd season of Centennial Conference football kicks off Saturday with three games ... two of the contests pit defending Conference champions (granted, we had five champs last season) against each other ... For more information on this week's games ... check out the Gameday section of our website.

Johns Hopkins at Dickinson
The Blue Jays (3-0) are ranked 24th in the country in this week's AFCA poll ... the Red Devils (1-2) have dropped two straight since a season-opening win against Juniata ... this is the 59th meeting between the schools and Hopkins holds a slim 28-26-4 advantage ... Dickinson captured a 17-7 decision last year in Baltimore ... JHU is 22-3 in its last 25 games and is riding a seven-game road win streak ...
