Miller has three tackles in Susquehanna loss
For the first time in over five years, the Susquehanna football team hosted a night game under the lights at Lopardo Stadium as the Crusaders welcomed Centennial Conference opponent Ursinus. Unfortunately, the excitement of the night did not translate into a win as SU fell 30-10 to the Bears.
Susquehanna (1-6, 1-5) was out-gained 368-272 in total offensive yards but did nearly match Ursinus (6-1, 5-1) in rushing yards with 151 to the Bears' 157.
Cody Miller, a Towanda graduate and the reigning Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week, added three tackles and a game-high two pass breakups.
JUNIATA FALLS TO MUHLENBERG
The Juniata College football team fell to Muhlenberg College 27-7 at home on Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference action. The Eagles (4-3, 3-3 Centennial) pulled within three in the second quarter, but Muhlenberg scored 17 straight points to earn the win.
"We just didn't do things today that we have done all year," said head coach Tim Launtz. "I don't think we played with passion or desire. But let's give Muhlenberg credit because they dominated both lines of scrimmage and they had a very good game plan."
Waverly grad Kevin Gorman had seven tackles for Juniata, three of which were solo tackles.

The Dutchmen gained 441 rushing yards while improving to 6-1 overall and 5-1 in the MAC.
