NEW CONCORD, OHIO, October 22, 2011 - The Muskingum University football team lost a heartbreaker against Otterbein University on Saturday, 17-13. The game was part of Muskingum's 90th Homecoming celebration.

Muskingum took the lead on a six-play, 60-yard drive that ended with a Carpenter 30-yard field at the 12:50 mark of the fourth quarter.
