Football - Tue, Feb. 15, 2011
Coach Bill Cronin and the Georgetown College football team will not rest on their laurels when they open play in 2011. After finishing the 2010 season with an 8-3 record, including a perfect 6-0 against Mid-South Conference East opponents, Georgetown opens with several tough opponents.
The Tigers finished No. 14 in the final NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll and their first opponent in the fall will be No. 13 Ottawa University. The Braves went 9-1 in the regular season and lost to then No. 11 Marian University. Marian finished No. 7 in the final poll.
Kick-off is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3.
GC will be home for five games, including rival games with University of the Cumberlands and Campbellsville University - both of which were in the Top 25 or receiving votes at the end of 2010.
The battle with the Patriots will be the second game of the season, set for a 1:30 p.m. kick-off Saturday, Sept. 17.
Shorter comes to town the very next Saturday. The Hawks defeated the Tigers for the first time this past season in an overtime thriller, 48-47. Kick-off is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
October starts with a trip to Kentucky Christian for a 1:30 p.m. kick-off followed by a return home to face Campbellsville University. These two were back-to-back games this past season on Thursday nights. Georgetown started its perfect run to the MSC East title with a 52-12 home win over the Knights, followed by a 52-21 win over the CU Tigers.
The third weekend in October has GC locked up against Pikeville College before coming home for a game with West Virginia Tech. October comes to a close with a Halloween trip to University of Virginia College at Wise.
There are two games in November. First, Lindsey Wilson makes its first-ever appearance as a football program at Toyota Stadium on the 5th. Then the Tigers concluded its regular season games with a trip to Belhaven.
Other than the first game with a 7 p.m. start time, all other games are to kick-off at 1:30 p.m.
