WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football team (0-2) is set to kickoff its third football game of the season on Saturday, Sept. 19 at the Multi-Sport Field, as the Hoyas play host to the Bulldogs from Yale. The contest is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m.
The game between the Hoyas and the Bulldogs can be seen live via HoyaVision at www.GUHoyas.com, with Chuck Timanus calling all of the action from the Multi-Sport Field. A live audio broadcast of every Georgetown game - both home and away - will be available through www.guhoyas.com.
Georgetown enters the game with a 0-2 record after a tough 28-3 loss last Saturday night to the Leopards from Lafayette. The game marked the first ever home night game for the Hoyas. The Hoya attack was led by sophomore quarterback James Brady (Melville, N.Y. / St. Anthony's), who finished the day completing 14-of-29 passes for 113 yards.
Sharing the signal-calling duties with Brady was freshman quarterback Isaiah Kempf (Glendale, Ariz. / Oaks Christian-Bridgton), who looked sharp in his first collegiate action, completing 6-of-12 pass attempts for 81 yards.
The running attack was led by versatile senior Charlie Houghton (Toronto, Canada/Phillips Academy [Mass.]), who finished with 35 yards rushing on nine carries and a total of 167 all-purpose yards after showcasing an electrifying kick return ability.
The defense came ready to play and put in their second straight strong performance led by sophomore defensive end Andrew Schaetzke (Toledo, Ohio / St. John's Jesuit). Schaetzke, who was one of six Hoya players to record more than five tackles, finished the day with 10 tackles (4.5 for loss) and two sacks.
The game Saturday afternoon will mark the first on the season for the Yale Bulldogs who are coming off a 6-4 campaign after leading the country in scoring defense last year. In addition to being the first game of the season it will also be the first for head coach Tom Williams, who takes over for Jack Siedlecki who compiled a 70-47 record during his 12 year tenure.
This will be the third meeting all-time between Georgetown and Yale. The Bulldogs hold a 2-0 advantage in the head to head series.
