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.

Georgetown College and Southeastern University (Lakeland, Fla.) are set to square off for the first time ever in football this Saturday at Toyota Stadium. However with Hurricane Irma set to hit the Florida coast late Saturday both teams are adjusting the schedule to ensure safety for all travelers.

"We have moved our kickoff up to an 11 am Saturday," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "It is important to us to keep the wellbeing of our opponents in mind. We've had several conversations on what is best and this is what allows them the most opportunity to return before Irma hits."

Kickoff is 11 am at Toyota Stadium. Gates will open at 9:30 am.

Georgetown College football had big moments in all three phases of the game resulting in a program first – a road win at Faulkner University. The No. 21 Tigers (1-0) had not won in Montgomery, Ala. in their previous two games there. The most recent being the only shutout ever in the coach Bill Cronin era. Saturday, the Tigers used all it had in a 40-39 overtime win.

Riley Hall went 17-of-33 with 234 yards and two passing touchdowns. Daric Pugh rushed nine times for 40 yards and scored twice.

The stiff defense turned one goal line opportunity into a turnover on downs. They kept FCU to just 68 rushing yards. The Eagles (1-1) opened the season with 241 yards on the ground at Kentucky Christian University. Starr Thompson and Isaiah Walker also came up with timely interceptions (three) to stall Faulkner's offense.

Tigers begin retreat at Ed Davis Learning Center

Georgetown College football always starts preseason camp with a senior retreat. Monday morning the Tigers returned and started with a community outreach by talking with mostly middle-school age boys at Ed Davis Learning Center. The seniors covered topics of staying focused in the classroom, being positive no matter the situation, making the right decisions, standing up for others and giving it their all in whatever they choose to do.

GC players shared that classes do not always come easy, but grades to stay eligible and earning knowledge no one can every take away are helpful to stay focused and really try in school. They talked about circumstances around them might not always be fair or one they created, but they must stay positive and make good choices on the outcomes they can control.
