For the second straight season, Georgetown College's football team went undefeated in Mid-South Conference divisional play. It is also a game away from a perfect regular season, not been done since 2006. The Tigers (9-0, 5-0) are MSC East Champions following a 56-27 win over Lindsey Wilson (6-3, 2-2) Saturday at Toyota Stadium on Senior Day.

They return to action next weekend at Belhaven looking to go 10-0.

No. 4 Georgetown opened with a first-drive touchdown when Neal Pawsat hit a wide open Adam Schmitz on a 20-yard route. Lindsey would tie it on a blocked field goal attempt and then twice more pulled within a score in the first half, before the Tigers took over.


Another Pawsat to Schmitz play with 11 seconds before half made it 35-20 and that is as close as the Blue Raiders would get again.

GC's defense flexed its muscle, forcing a fumble on LWC's first possession of the final 30 minutes. Brandon Lawson made the hit and recovered the loose ball, setting up a one-play, 27-yard score - Pawsat to Rob Madon - and a 42-20 advantage. Schmitz scored for the third time, this one on the ground, as the third quarter expired. The Tigers led 49-20 at that point.

Pawsat finished 24-of-36 with 415 yards and six passing touchdowns and no interceptions. Chris Gohman hauled in four catches for 116 yards and a score, Madon had four catches for 101 yards and a score, and Schmitz had six catches for 82 yards and two scores. The sophomore finished with 107 all-purpose yards and three scores with six rushes for 25 yards and a score.

GC's defense allowed just 272 yards of offense. The Tigers controlled the game, running 71 plays for 523 yards.
