Georgetown College football entered the fourth quarter with a 24-14 lead and total command against Cumberland University. However, the showdown between two Mid-South Conference Bluegrass Divisional foes and Top 25 teams had an electric fourth quarter that finished with the No. 12 Tigers holding on for a 38-28 win. 

"We'll take the win," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "I like the way we started. We finished blocks and executed well offensively and defensively in the first half." 

The No. 12 Tigers (4-0, 1-0) started the fourth as back-up quarterback Reese Ryan engineered a 71-yard drive, capped off with a 15-yard shovel pass to Darius Barbour for a 17-point edge, 31-14 with 11:30 left to go in the game. The No. 22 Phoenix (4-2, 0-1) came to life, scoring 14-unanswered points. Back-up quarterback Joseph Rushin, who came in early in the third quarter after starter Dezmon Huntley got injured, threw an 81-yard bomb to Denarius Toliver for the score and to put the game back in reach just a minute and a half later. Two series later, Rushin threw a 67-yard touchdown to Toliver as Cumberland pulled with three. The Phoenix's onside kick but was recovered by the Tigers' Shawn Gilliam. Georgetown just needed a first down to put the game away but on the second play of the drive, Daric Pugh busted a 43-yard touchdown run to seal the game and give the Tigers a 38-28 win.

Twice in three games, and on both road trips, Georgetown College football has scored on a blocked field goal. Saturday's against Bluefield College helped to keep the Rams (1-3) from gaining momentum after a quick score.

The No. 16 Tigers (3-0) had another solid first two drives, converted multiple third downs and a fourth down as well to help them grab a 9-0 advantage – extra point was missed wide. However, following a Daric Pugh 2-yard touchdown, Tyler Dummer's first kick was nullified by an off sides call. His second kick was returned 76 yards to the GC 20.

Georgetown College football's defense proved once again its top in the country giving up seven points Saturday against Point University. This seemed like a game that Georgetown would run away with in the first quarter offensively, but Point finally got settled in on defense and made some huge stops throughout the game to hold GC to just more than three touchdowns. The No. 16 Tigers (2-0) used a touchdown and two safeties to seal the game in the fourth, 25-7. 

The stingy defense held the Skyhawks to 156 total yards and scored the final four points. Late in the fourth quarter, Point quarterback Derek Bellard took a bad snap and kicked it out of the back of the end zone as several Tigers gave chase. Then the visitor's final drive, Bellard was sacked by Dustin Haraway in the end zone. 

"Our defense did an outstanding job today," said Georgetown coach Bill Cronin. "I don't know if I've been involved in a game where we had two safeties. It was an awesome effort."

In the past 12 hours Hurricane Irma has been upgraded to a category 5 storm system and has potential to be the most damaging hurricane in recent years.

"With new facts and predictions coming to light late in the day yesterday, all parties have decided it is in the best interest to cancel Saturday's football game with Southeastern University," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "(SEU AD) Drew Watson and I talked at length and the best thing for their students right now is to focus on what Florida officials are asking everyone to do as they enter a state of emergency.
