Georgetown’s defense has been keeping the Hoyas close this entire season and last week the "D" again posted points on the scoreboard at Fordham with Michael Ononibaku’s 30-yard interception return on the first play from scrimmage. On the season Georgetown has scored 12 TDs and four of those are credited to the defense, with three interception returns and one fumble return. The Hoya pass defense, led by junior safeties Maurice Banks and Sheldon Epps, ranks second in the league limiting the opposition to just 167.2 yards per game.
Georgetown alum Pete Lembo (‘92) brings Lehigh to Washington for the third time in four seasons. The Hawks are winning with a steady offense and a dominating defense in 2004. Quarterback Mark Borda is the league leader in passing yards (237.0) and defensive lineman Tom Alfsen is #1 in the conference and #4 in the nation for sacks with 10.
For the second straight season Lehigh pays a visit to Washington, D.C. except this time the Mountain Hawks bring a #9 national ranking. Georgetown has lost three straight to Lehigh and is currently on a two-game losing streak this season. The Hawks have ripped off six consecutive wins and own an undefeated record in league games, including a 21-14 victory over last season’s Patriot League champion Colgate. The overall series favors Lehigh, 5-4, with GU’s victories all coming prior to 1925.
