Georgetown College football got another big day from running back JJ Jude. The senior compiled 187 all-purpose yards and two scores as the No. 11 Tigers (6-1, 4-0 MSC East) beat Union College, 35-12, Saturday in Barbourville.

Jude rushed 18 times for 155 yards and had two receptions for 32 yards. He rushed for a touchdown and caught a 27 swing pass from Clay McKee for the first score of the game.

The Bulldogs (4-3, 2-1) responded right back on a one-play, 69 yard Alex Bell to Tyler Toombs strike. UC missed the extra point and that is as close as the game got.

McKee engineered a 14 play, 66-yard drive capped off by a 14-yard pass play to Ross Cox. Josh Depp kicked the extra point and it was 14-6.

Union scored early in the second quarter to be down a safety, but Jude busted a 68-yard scoring rush for a 21-12 advantage just 14 seconds later.

Zach Harris broke a 70-yard run to secure the cushion just before halftime.

Neither team scored in the third quarter. Then McKee helped to finish off the scoring with a four-yard pass to Bart Bell and the final score three minutes into the fourth quarter.

The sophomore quarterback finished 12-of-19 for 112 yards and three touchdowns in his second start under center. GC finished with just north of 400-yards total – 279 on the ground.

Georgetown's defensive unit smothered the run again – just 126 yards. A few long tosses helped Union make it interesting until late in the second quarter.

The Tigers return to action 1:30 pm Saturday hosting NCAA Division II Alderson Broaddus University.
