JHU football seeks 16th consecutive regular-season win

Blue Jays open Centennial Conference play at Susquehanna

The Johns Hopkins football team will hit the road for the first time this season when it visits Susquehanna in Selinsgrove, Pa., on Saturday at 1 p.m. The game is the Centennial Conference opener for both teams.

The Blue Jays (1-0) are coming off a 36-13 win against Randolph-Macon and are looking for their 16th consecutive regular-season win. JHU piled up 510 yards of total offense against the Yellow Jackets, including 344 rushing yards. Sophomore linebacker Hani Annabi, who had 10 tackles and forced a fumble in the victory, was named the conference defensive player of the week.

The Crusaders (1-0) scored 34 second-half points in a 37-21 win against the Merchant Marine Academy last weekend. Quarterback Mark Rosenbaum threw two touchdown passes to Mike Ritter, and Susquehanna's defense scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Johns Hopkins defeated Susquehanna 56-7 last season at Homewood Field.
