It was all the Tigers today, the Georgetown College Tigers that is, as Georgetown improved to 5-1 on the season with a 59-6 win over the Campbellsville University Tigers Saturday at Toyota Stadium.

The Tigers came out rolling, scoring on all six of their first half possessions and taking a 42-0 lead into the locker room after rushing for a total of 146 yards and adding 194 passing yards in the first half.

Defensively, senior Brandon Blackerby had two interceptions, while Jerome Manson led Georgetown with six tackles, three solo and three assisted. Jason Limberger added five tackles, including one for a loss of 11 yards.

For Campbellsville, the lone score was a four-yard run by Jason Foley, only to have Taylor Pruitt's extra point attempt blocked by Georgetown's Nick Schickel.

Despite putting up big numbers on the scoreboard, the offensive success wasn't the part of the game that Head Coach Bill Cronin was most pleased with - it was having no turnovers. "That is getting back to the fundamentals and playing Tiger Football," he said. "It's great to see our guys focused again (after last week's 49-21 loss to Bethel College)."

Campbellsville's Sherman Williams was notified by phone shortly after arriving in Georgetown that his father had died. The redshirt freshman from Louisville was noticed by the Georgetown staff. "He went ahead and played and did an outstanding job," said Cronin. "We are all praying for him and his family."

Up next for Georgetown will be homecoming versus West Virginia Tech. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
