Georgetown at Lehigh Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction, 10/26/2019

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

You can read College Sports Journal’s preview of the game here, and my mostly-football-free “Tailgate Report” here.

I forgot in my “Tailgate Report” to do a look at Lehigh’s game notes, so I’ll do it here.

To most fans, seeing QB Addison Shoup on top of the depth chart at quarterback was probably the biggest eye-opener as QB Tyler Monaco was the starter last week, and was in the game until the last couple of plays in overtime. 

As of the time of this writing, although some people have assured that Monaco is well enough to go, the truth is he didn’t practice the entirety of this week, so I would more characterize more as a “gametime decision” as to whether it is Monaco or Shoup under center.  It seems fair to say that Monaco will start and play if he’s able.

CB Marquis Wilson has struggled to get back to 100% from his injuries at corner, so freshman CB Brandon Spencer will be re-inserted into the starting lineup this week.

The final change to the roster is that freshman RB Zaythan Hill, who has really stepped up in Lehigh’s last two conference victories, is now listed atop the depth chart at running back.  That’s not to say we won’t see RB Rashawn Allen or RB Nate Hope II – we’ll be very likely to see them in a rotation of backs.

2018 Week 7, Georgetown: Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction

2018 Week 7, Georgetown: Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction

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

Normally, we don’t need to break out the Las Vegas betting lines to motivate Lehigh football players.  But in this very special case, it seems worthy to make an exception.

The people who make a living betting on the outcomes of sporting contests have seen Georgetown, yes, Georgetown, set up as 14 point favorites to beat Lehigh. 

Don’t believe me?  Check it out.

You know what else is interesting?  The line started out with Georgetown only 4 point favorites.  Over the course of the last 48 hours, apparently, so much money has come in on Georgetown that it has actually swelled to a 14 point difference.

If there was ever a concrete indicator that there are a lot of people that believe Lehigh will fail this weekend, and fail by more than two touchdowns, this is it.

QUICK RECAP: Pelletier’s Career Day Helps Propel Lehigh To Victory over Georgetown, 54-35

QUICK RECAP: Pelletier’s Career Day Helps Propel Lehigh To Victory over Georgetown, 54-35

Before the game, the Lehigh sports social media team had some graphics ready for a record that senior WR Troy Pelletier had a high probability of breaking today.

Troy, or “The Doctor”, as I call him, had to get 60 yards receiving to beat the Patriot League record for receiving yardage.

After he skied past that record, the social media folks had to keep assembling a lot more graphics.

By the end of the game, more records would be falling left and right.  The career Patriot League touchdown record – the first time since 2001 since a Lehigh player nabbed 4 touchdown receptions in a game.  Somewhere in the fourth quarter, he’d grab his 16th reception, breaking his own record for receptions in a game.

In the end, Lehigh cruised, never trailing in a 54-28 win over the Hoyas, but the story was Pelletier, whose amazing 16 catch, 197 yard, 4 TD game was the talk afterwards.
