Tonight's game

Muhlenberg (1-4, 1-3) at Johns Hopkins (4-1, 3-0)

Site: Homewood Field

Time: 7

Outlook: The Mules picked up their first win last week, beating Swarthmore, 41-6, in Centennial Conference action. Hopkins, however, figures to present a significantly tougher challenge. Still, Muhlenberg features a tough running back in Jason Brader, who rushed for 263 yards and two touchdowns last week. He could be a factor against a team that is often vulnerable against good running backs, as it was against Gettysburg two weeks ago, when Paul Smith collected 165 rushing yards and 318 all-purpose yards against the Blue Jays. Still, Hopkins delivered a tough defensive effort against Ursinus during a 22-8 win last week, led by linebacker Andrew Bainbridge, who won defensive player of the week honors in the conference after making seven tackles (including one in the end zone for a safety) and an interception.
