Scouting the Hoyas

I'm sure the Yale football staff had more than just a passing interest in Saturday's Lafayette/Georgetown game considering that the Bulldogs open at Georgetown on Saturday and host Lafayette on Oct. 3.

The first night game at Georgetown's Multi-Sport Field was not one to remember as the Hoyas managed a total of 22 yards in their first eight drives. Meanwhile, after a slow start, Lafayette had touchdowns on three of four drives.

Former Hillhouse star Keerome Lawrence had a team-high 45 yards receiving and tied for the team lead with five receptions for Georgetown. The defensive star for Georgetown was Andrew Schaetzke who had 4 1/2 tackles for losses including two sacks.

Rob Curley was 20 of 34 passing for 259 yards and three touchdowns. Mark Layton had seven catches for 109 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Lafayette.

Georgetown heads into Saturday's game with an 0-2 record. The Hoyas have been outscored 48-10 in losses to Holy Cross and Lafayette. The rushing game has been almost non-existent with 57 net yards in the two games. The only two runs for more than 10 yards are by receivers (Rick Cosgrove and Lawrence). The defense is surrendering nearly 500 yards per game.
