HUNTINGDON, Pa. – The Juniata College football team is coming off its bye week and looking to rebound after dropping its last two games.  The Eagles have had one of the most successful starts to a season in program history and look to jump back on track against Ursinus College this Saturday, Oct. 19 at noon in a Centennial Conference showdown.

 
 

SERIES HISTORY
This is the 19th meeting of Juniata and the Bears.  The Eagles lead the all-time series 10-8 but have lost three of the last five meetings in Collegeville.  Ursinus owns the series in recent history after Juniata won nine straight between 1947-1978.  Juniata has not won on the road against the Bears since 1977 when they ran away with a 34-0 win.  In their last meeting in Collegeville, Ursinus held the Eagles to just seven points as they went  on to win 21-7.  The two programs have been meeting since 1922.
