WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football team (1-0, 0-0 Patriot League) hosts Wagner College (0-1, 0-0 NEC) for its home-opener at Multi-Sport Field on Saturday, September 8 with the opening kick-off slated for 1:05 p.m. The meeting will be the fourth between the Hoyas and Seahawks, with GU holding a 2-1 series advantage, including a 24-10 victory on October 8, 2011.
The Hoyas will also be celebrating Football Alumni Weekend on the Hilltop, as the game marks the Fifth Annual Scotty Glacken Memorial Game. Former coach Dan Droze, who spent 23 years coaching the Hoyas defensive backfield, will be honored during a halftime ceremony.
The game will be broadcast live on Hoyavision through the Georgetown Athletics website - www.guhoyas.com - with Chuck Timanus providing the play-by-play. Fans can also receive game updates from the team's official twitter account: @HoyasFB.
Despite the loss of starting quarterback and captain Isaiah Kempf (Glendale, Calif./Bridgton Academy) during the first series of its season-opener at Davidson, the Hoyas offense gained 408 total yards, including 280 yards on the ground. Junior running back Nick Campanella (Roselle, Ill./Montini Catholic) posted a career-high 127 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns with a long of 53 yards. He also caught a nine yard touchdown pass helping him earn Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors for the first time in his career. The Hoyas also received strong play from junior quarterback Aaron Aiken (Morristown, N.J./The Lawrenceville School), who rushed for 109 yards and passed for 128 yards and two touchdowns in his first extended action. Aiken earn his first collegiate start this week against Wagner.
The Hoyas defense picked up where it left off in 2011, holding Davidson, who ranked eighth in Division I FCS in passing a year ago, to just 208 total yards. GU's run defense held the Wildcats to negative-18 yards on the ground, the ninth best defensive effort in Georgetown history. Senior linebacker Robert McCabe (Newtown Square, Calif./Malvern Prep) had a career-high 17 tackles and three tackles for loss to earn Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week honors for the second time. Junior linebacker Dustin Wharton (LaVale, Md./Allegany) proved to be a difference-maker with eight tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks in the season-opener, while sophomore Alec May (Wrenthem, Mass./King Phillip) had two of the team's five sacks.
Junior placekicker/punter Matt MacZura (Cranberry Township, Pa./Central Catholic) connected on all five of the Hoyas extra-point attempts in his first action at placekicker, after spending his first two seasons on the Hilltop as the team's punter.
WAGNER: The Seahawks look to bounce back from a 7-3 loss to FBS opponent Florida Atlantic last weekend. Dominique Williams rushed for 117 yards on 24 carries against FAU in the loss. Williams was among the top rushers in Division I FCS, compiling 1,338 yards on 274 carries and 14 touchdowns.
