Georgetown announces 2024 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Georgetown Hoyas have announced their 2024 football schedule, which features six home games and 11 contests overall.

“Our players, coaches and staff are extremely excited for the upcoming 2024 campaign,” said Georgetown University Football Head Coach Rob Sgarlata. “The schedule will feature six home games at Cooper Field and five away games. The structure of our schedule, with five challenging out of conference games, will prepare us for the Patriot League contests. We open the season against Davidson and then travel to Marist and Sacred Heart before we welcome Brown and Columbia from the Ivy League to the Hilltop. We will take advantage of two bye weeks to prepare for our six league games. Our entire program is working diligently to improve each day in preparation for this upcoming season.”

Georgetown will play all five of its non-conference games on the front half of its schedule, beginning on Saturday, Aug. 31 at home at Cooper Field in Washington, D.C., against the Davidson Wildcats.

Next, the Hoyas hit the road for consecutive games against the Marist Red Foxes on Sept. 7 and the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Sept. 14. Georgetown then returns to the nation’s capital to host the Brown Bears on Sept. 21 and the Columbia Lions on Sept. 28.

The remainder of Georgetown’s 2024 schedule is all Patriot League opponents — at Lafayette on Oct. 12, at Colgate on Oct. 19, vs. Bucknell on Oct. 26, vs. Lehigh on Nov. 2, at Fordham on Nov. 16, and vs. Holy Cross on Nov. 23.

Georgetown will have open dates on Oct. 5 and Nov. 9.

Georgetown is at a competitive disadvantage since they are still a non-scholarship program while the rest of the Patriot League schools are not.

The PFL would be ideal, especially since it would give that league an even 12 members to allow a divisional schedule format.

The Patriot League should add Bryant and Merrimack as full members, and let Georgetown depart. This would give the league eight football members which would mean that everyone plays a conference game in the final week of the season. It would also allow the conference to split into divisions for basketball which would greatly reduce travel:

North–Army, Boston U, Bryant, Colgate, Holy Cross, Merrimack
South–American, Bucknell, Lafayette, Lehigh, Loyola, Navy,
