On Saturday, October 15, Georgetown University employed a methodical, balanced offensive attack and an opportunistic defense to shut down Howard, 21-3 in a non-conference game at Greene Stadium. The win was the second straight for the Hoyas, who improved to 5-2 while the Bison (3-4) had their two-game win streak snapped.

"We did not come out mentally prepared," explained Howard first year coach Gary Harrell. "We didn't play with a lot of energy and pride. Georgetown's defense shut down our offense. We have to give them credit. They played well."

Howard has made a habit of playing better in the second half of games this season and came out with more energy after intermission and forced a turnover deep in the Georgetown territory, but settle for a FG after back-to-back penalties.

"They put a lot of pressure on us early and it bothered us," said Georgetown Coach Kevin Kelley. "We started throwing some screens and it opened things up for us." Compiled from HUSID
