Bridgewater (Va.) (1-5) at Johns Hopkins (5-1)

Site: Homewood Field

Time: 7: 30

Outlook: Bridgewater's five losses have come to teams with a combined record of 29-2. Four of those teams -- Western Maryland, Catholic, Methodist and Emory & Henry -- are ranked among the Top 10 in the NCAA Division III South Region poll. Western Maryland opened its season this year with a 21-17 victory over Bridgewater on the road. The Green Terror and Blue Jays are tied for first in the Centennial Conference with 4-0 records. Bridgewater receiver Corey Butts (Cardinal Gibbons) has 16 receptions for 187 yards and three touchdowns. Hopkins remained on a roll last week when sophomore RB Adam Gentile scored from 8 yards out with 33 seconds left to turn back Muhlenberg, 24-21, in a Centennial Conference test. It was the Blue Jays' first last-minute conference win since Oct. 12, 1985, when they beat Ursinus, 16-14, on a 36-yard field goal with 24 seconds left by Eli Kabillio.
