Bulldogs remember last year's Georgetown game

Even if Georgetown hadn't opened the season with wins over Davidson and Lafayette, the Hoyas are in no danger of being overlooked by Yale on Saturday when the Bulldogs open the 2011 season with a noon game against Georgetown at the Yale Bowl.

The Bulldogs seemingly had the game well in their control with a 27-14 halftime lead. Spurred on by touchdowns by New Haven natives Jeremy Moore and Keerome Lawrence, Georgetown scored 21 straight points to take a 35-27 lead and needed a last-minute drive to come away with a 40-35 victory.

Patrick Witt threw for 407 yards and a pair of touchdowns and had the game-winning score on a 1-yard run as time expired.

Witt has a pretty good idea of how Georgetown wants to play defensively.

"There is a lot out there against this defense," Witt said. "One of the big things about them, is they don't want to let you get behind them. You have to be patient and be willing to take five yards, eight yards at a time and not try to be greedy."

Here is senior linebacker Jordan Haynes' take on Georgetown.

"Defensively, we are excited," Haynes said. "It will be a good challenge for us. They have some good receivers, a good quarterback who played last year. We are excited for the opportunity to test our eyes. They run a lot of different , they have several different receivers, they have a quarterback who likes to run it."

Yale coach Tom Williams likes what he has seen from his team during practice this week.

"I think our team is hungry and ready to go," Williams said. "I know our offense wants to have a better showing than against Dean. Now that we have a game plan and have some concrete examples of what they are going to see on Saturday, I expect them to be better and the defense will look to pick up where they left off."
