A little scouting

Yale is 13 days away from its season opener but the Bulldogs' three non-conference opponents all opened up this weekend.

Georgetown, which will play at Yale on Sept. 20, defeated Howard 12-7 on Sunday.

Freshman James Brady and sophomore Keerome Lawrence, a former Hillhouse star, split time at quarterback. Brady was 12 for 20 for 131 yards including a 31-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Mitchell while Lawrence ran for 38 yards. Ataefiok Etukeren had two sacks and Chris Rau had nine tackles to lead Georgetown's defense.

Holy Cross, which will visit the Yale Bowl on Oct. 4, nearly upset UMass - the fourth-ranked team in the Football Championship Subdivision preseason poll before losing 45-42 on a last-second field goal on Saturday.

Former Pomperaug star Mike Kielt led the Crusaders with 51 yards rushing while Dominic Randolph passed for 239 yards and three touchdowns.

Fordham, which will host Yale on Oct. 18, shut out Rhode Island 16-0 on Sunday. Former Bloomfield High star Andre Delaire had nine tackles while Ryan Mehra, Nicholas Magiera, Greg DeMarco and Ryan Darcey combined for seven sacks to lead a defense which held URI to 174 yards. Offensively, Xavier Martin ran for 169 yards and John Skelton threw for 267.
