Diplomats Earn ECAC Bid

CAPE COD, Mass. – The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) has announced its 2010 Football Bowl Championships.  This year fourteen teams, including Franklin & Marshall, will be competing in seven bowls on Saturday, November 20.  Each bowl will be hosted by an ECAC member institution.

The Diplomats (6-4) will head west to face Washington & Jefferson. The Presidents posted an 8-2 mark in 2010, finishing in second place in the President’s Athletic Conference behind 10-0 Thomas More.

The ECAC Bowl bid is F&M’s eighth overall. It is also the second in as many years for Franklin & Marshall. The Diplomats defeated Wilkes University in the South Atlantic Bowl last year. F&M’s 6-4 record marks the second winning season in as many years as well. It is the first time since 1995 and 1996 that F&M has secured consecutive winning seasons.
