November 04, 2012|By Mike Klingaman, The Baltimore Sun

Nov. 10, 2001: Johns Hopkins defeats archrival Western Maryland, 21-14, in Westminster, ending the latter's 33-game Centennial Conference winning streak. Zach Baylin's 15 receptions (three for touchdowns) set a school record for Hopkins (6-3). Western Maryland (now McDaniel) slips to 8-2.

Nov. 8, 1998: Four sacks by defensive end Michael McCrary and a game-ending interception by Duane Starks in the end zone lift the Ravens (3-6) to a 13-10 upset of the visiting Oakland Raiders (6-3). The victory breaks a four-game losing streak for the Ravens, who win in the month of November for the first time in their three-year history.

Nov. 6, 1983: The Colts use two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and four sacks to defeat the New York Jets, 17-14, at Shea Stadium. It's the sixth victory in 10 games for Baltimore, winless last year. "Don't get carried away, men," coach Frank Kush tells the Colts, who'll finish 7-9 in their last season here.

Nov. 9, 1968: Kevin Loughery's 25-foot jumper with two seconds left gives the Baltimore Bullets a 109-107 win over the San Diego Rockets before an announced 10,915 at the Civic Center. It's the sixth straight victory for coach Gene Shue's team, which improves to 10-3 despite a 30-point, 26-rebound performance by Rockets' rookie Elvin Hayes.

Nov. 4, 1967: George Nock rushes for two touchdowns and John Fuqua one in Morgan State's 24th consecutive victory, 28-13 over Hampton Institute. Also, quarterback Daryl Johnson throws a 60-yard touchdown to Raymond Chester. All four Bears will play in the pros, and Morgan's winning streak will end at 31.

Nov. 8, 1966: It's unanimous: Outfielder Frank Robinson, the Orioles' Triple Crown winner, is named the American League's Most Valuable Player, becoming the first to take the award in both leagues. The Birds dominate voting as third baseman Brooks Robinson finishes second and first baseman Boog Powell, third. Asked whether he would request a raise, F. Robby says, "$100,000 would be a good place to start."

Nov. 6, 1965: In a showdown for state football supremacy, host Navy dominates Maryland, 19-7, while holding the Terps to minus-58 rushing yards. Midshipmen quarterback John Cartwright passes for two touchdowns as Navy (4-3-1) gains 432 yards on offense. Maryland falls to 3-4.

Nov. 7, 1936: Bill Ingram drop-kicks a 22-yard field goal, giving Navy a 3-0 win over Notre Dame (4-2) at Baltimore Stadium. Before the announced crowd of 57,500, including aviator Amelia Earhart, the victorious Midshipmen (4-3) celebrate by carrying the goal posts overhead from one end of the field to the other.

Nov. 7, 1903: Mount St. Mary's scores a safety just before halftime for the game's only points in defeating Maryland, 2-0, in Emmitsburg.


Nov. 10, 1896: Jimmy Dykes, the modern Orioles' first manager in 1954. Dykes, who led the Birds to a 54-100 finish, died in 1976.
