How To Catch Lehigh at Georgetown

This weekend's Lehigh/Georgetown game, if you're not able to make it to Multi-Sport Field in DC, is available with a live video stream through GUHoyas.Com.   You will have to pay for this "premium" privilege, but if you don't like to pay, you can listen to the game for free on AM 1230 or 1320 in the Lehigh Valley with Matt Kerr and Steve Lomangino on the call.  (You can also listen for free over the internet here, and possibly get live stats here.)

Game time is noon, and the live audio broadcast starts at 11 AM on the radio.

And I will also say that if you follow my Twitter feed (@LFN), I'll do my best to keep up with the action.

Game Breakdown: Lehigh at Georgetown, 11/1/2014

We break down the Georgetown game - and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

Whenever I need to get caught up on Georgetown, I always check the Hoya game notes and athletic site, of course, but I also, always, check out DFW Hoya's site on Georgetown football for his in-depth analysis and breakdown of the Hoyas.

His site was one of the few sites talking about FCS football at all when I started doing this Lehigh Football Nation thing at the very beginning, and his site has always been an inspiration - and I don't toss that word around lightly - to what I've wanted LFN to become.  As a fellow website-master, I know how much work it takes to do previews and games, and I appreciate it.

In his preview could be the stat of the season for Lehigh.  As a Hoya fan, he looks at this season as Georgetown's best chance to beat Lehigh since the Hoyas joined the Patriot League.  He also said this, which is true:

"The Engineers are a woeful 4-22 in two PL games converting on third down. Lehigh should do somewhat better in this one, but their gains on second down figure to be just as, if not more, important, when short yardage options become more plentiful. Defensively, Lehigh allows 55% of third downs, something Georgetown must take advantage of."

Game Preview, Lehigh at Georgetown, 11/1/2014

The Lehigh football team is lucky.

For most football programs and a whole lot of Division I football players, the end of the season is visible.  Many seniors see their final games at home, "senior day", and maybe a road game or two to play their final games as seniors - that is, if the coaching staffs haven't already started looking forward to the 2015 season and figuring out who is likely to start next season.

But with the Mountain Hawks, who essentially are eliminated from any Patriot League championship consideration with their loss to Fordham last weekend, there is always the week before Thanksgiving.

Because for Lehigh players, there are three championships every year.

The first two, the FCS National Championship and the Patriot League championship, are not in the cards this year.

But the third championship most certainly is.

Rams Offense Proves Virtually Unstoppable, Fordham Beats Lehigh 48-27

As beautiful fall days go, it was hard to beat this Saturday's homecoming game at Murray Goodman when it came to weather, atmosphere, or color.

Unfortunately for Lehigh, it was also hard to beat the Fordham offense that showed up on homecoming in terms of physicalness, efficiency, and big play ability.

The Mountain Hawks showed a lot of fight on Saturday, playing tough until the end against the No. 12-ranked Rams.  But after Fordham surged to a two-score lead early in the game, Lehigh's efforts to cut the deficit never really made it close, falling 48-27 in a career day for Fordham freshman RB Chase Edmonds.
