Bison LB Keith Pough had 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks in last weekend’s 17-10 win over Florida A&M, when he also became the all-time FCS leader in career tackles for a loss. Howard (4-1, 3-0 MEAC) ranks seventh nationally in both sacks and tackles for a loss per game. The Aggies (2-3, 0-2) rank second nationally in total defense at 267 yards allowed per game.

Georgetown vs. Lehigh

1 p.m. at Multi-Sport Field.

The Hoyas’ Patriot League opener will be a tough one, as the Mountain Hawks have won an FCS-best 15 consecutive regular season games, are undefeated at 6-0 and are ranked 10th in the FCS coaches’ poll. Plus, Georgetown has lost each of its 11 games with Lehigh since joining the Patriot League. Hoyas LB Robert McCabe leads the FCS in tackles (13.83 per game), and Georgetown averages eight tackles for a loss per game (seventh nationally).
