Monday Morning Quarterback

Franklin & Marshall posted its first shutout since 1997 with a 6-0 triumph against Carnegie Mellon. The Tartans, who lost to Johns Hopkins, 9-6, last weekend, have not allowed a touchdown in their last two games. Gettysburg and Muhlenberg headed west for contests with Denison and Grove City, respectively, and came back east empty-handed. The Big Red defeated the Bullets, 49-21, while the Mules fell to the Wolverines, 16-6.
