This is the third meeting between GC and LWC, as it is just the third season for the Blue Raiders to play football. The Tigers hold a 2-0 edge in the series, heading to Columbia for the second time. GC has outscored the Blue Raiders by 38 points, but the youthful program has been coming along very well.
"Coach (Chris) Oliver has been building this program right," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "He has recruited well and developed that team to be successful each year. They now have more experience with mostly juniors and even a few seniors on the field."
The Blue Raiders finished just behind the Tigers a season ago in the Mid-South Conference East Division. The two teams are no longer divisional rivals, but Saturday's showdown will have rankings implications as well as bragging rights on the line.
LWC opened with a tough overtime loss at Kentucky Christian (2-0), another young program moving in the right direction in the Mid-South Conference. It followed that up with solid wins against Union College and University of Pikeville.
Georgetown opened with a lopsided win over Bluefield College, starting its program back for the first time since 1941, and followed it with a two-touchdown victory over Faulkner University (1-1) - which is now receiving votes in the national poll.
