Georgetown announces 2022 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

The Georgetown Hoyas have announced their 2022 football schedule, which features six home dates.

Georgetown will open the 2022 season on the road. The Hoyas will venture to Poughkeepsie, N.Y. to take on Marist of the Pioneer League (PFL) at Tenney Stadium at Leonidoff Field on Saturday, Sept. 3. The Hoyas will again grace their home surface at Cooper Field to lift the lid on Patriot League play on Saturday, Sept. 10.

Georgetown then travels to Monmouth, the newest member of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), for a Sept. 17 date. Columbia will visit the nation’s capital for a non-league tilt to close September play.

The Hoyas will spend three of their four October dates on the road. Georgetown will do battle with three league foes on the road, beginning with Fordham (Oct. 1), and closing the month with back-to-back road trips to Colgate (Oct. 22) and Lafayette (Oct. 29). Penn will travel to Washington, D.C. on Oct. 8, marking the second Ivy League foe to battle the Hoyas.

St. Francis (Pa.) will represent Georgetown’s final non-league opponent of the year on Saturday, Nov. 5. The three-game road swing flips in November, with league combatants Bucknell (Nov. 12) and Holy Cross (Nov. 19) finalizing the Hoyas’ slate without their having to travel.

Below is Georgetown’s complete schedule for the 2022 season, plus a link to their schedule page which will be updated with kickoff times and TV as they are announced:

Georgetown is at a competitive disadvantage because they don’t offer scholarships while the other Patriot League football schools do. They can’t possibly be happy with this arrangement.

They should move to the Pioneer Football League soon, where they can compete with other non-scholarship FCS programs. They would be the PFL’s 12th member, which would allow them to divide into divisions at least for purposes of forming a schedule format, division standings not necessarily needing to be kept.

Georgetown DOES offer football scholarships (15 per year and up over the entire roster just as the other league members do.) Whatever disadvantages may be present for the Hoyas’ athletic department, this is not one of them.

They offer scholarships on basis of academics and financial need, for their football program, similar to how the IVy schools “don’t” offer athletic scholarships yet still manages to field competitive squads (especially against Patriot League opponents). They are far from a non-scholarship program.

Remember the rest of their athletic programs play in the very competitive and well finanaced Big East Conference.

Where is the $50 million that the Cooper family donated? It took 15 years to build a 3,750 stadium? There is NO commitment to winning at Georgetown as far as football. Now, the basketball team is awful!!!!! ODU tore down the two sidelines and rebuilt it in one offseason for $67 million! Press box included. 22,480 or so. They would lose to club football teams! So sad!!!!!
