Georgetown enters today's game with a 1-2 overall record and an 1-1 mark in the Patriot League.

The Hoya defense has been led by senior linebacker Jason Carter, who has a team-high 25 tackles, and junior defensive end Julius Griauzde, who is second on the team with 22 tackles.
Stony Brook enters today's game with a 1-1 overall record. The Seawolves posted a 21-18 win over Bucknell in their home opener and lost to No. 23 Hofstra, 55-0, last week.

The Seawolves lost four all-league players to graduation, including all-time NEC sack leader Dave Bamiro and all-time conference reception leader Londre Blocker. The lone all-league player back for the team is junior offensive lineman Leo Sullivan. He will lead a line that led the league in passing last year, but starts a new signal caller in 2005.
