Time: 1 p.m. Series: Hopkins leads 25-15-3 Last week: Hopkins defeated Gettysburg, 23-21; Ursinus defeated Mount Ida (Mass.), 27-24. Outlook: Hopkins is looking for the school's best start (5-0) in 71 years, and the Jays will be out to tie the school record of seven straight wins (dating back to last season), which has been accomplished three times. The six consecutive victories comprise the longest active NCAA streak in the state and in the Centennial Conference, and only an upset today by the Bears would end the streak.
