Georgetown to play six home games
Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Georgetown University's football team will play six home games this season, its highest total since 2005.
The Patriot League school announced an 11-game schedule on Wednesday that includes home games at Multi-Sport Field against Wagner (Sept. 8), Yale (Sept. 15), Brown (Sept. 29), Lehigh (Oct. 13), Bucknell (Nov. 10) and Holy Cross (Nov. 17).
"Our guys are very hungry, so motivation will not be a problem heading into the 2012 season," head coach Kevin Kelly said. "Last year we got a taste of winning, getting so close to our ultimate goal. This year, our motto is 'Finish the Job,' and our guys have done a great job of living up to that."
