Bucknell Bison (3-7)


Bucknell rallies to beat Georgetown 20-17

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) Logan Bitikofer threw a 45-yard pass to Dominic Lyles for Bucknell’s second touchdown of the fourth quarter and the Bison rallied to beat Georgetown 20-17 on Saturday and keep their Patriot League title hopes alive.

Simeon Page blocked and recovered a punt to set up a 3-yard rushing TD by Chad Freshnock earlier in the quarter but a 2-point conversion failed and the Bison trailed 17-12. But Bitikofer found Lyles deep down the left sideline with 10:47 remaining and the Bucknell defense held from there. It was the defense that gave Bucknell its other score when Nnamdi Unachukwu forced a fumble and Gavin Pringle returned it 55 yards in the first quarter.

Bucknell only had 236 yards offense but its defense recovered three fumbles and intercepted a pass.
