HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) — Michael Brescia ran for three touchdowns to lead Colgate to a 34-24 win over Georgetown, ending the Red Raiders’ four-game losing streak while extending the Hoyas’ skid to six. Colgate took control with a pair of second quarter touchdowns that capped long drives. Brescia finished a 12 plays, 72-yard drive with a seven-yard run and a 15-play, 77-yard drive with a 13-yard run, which pushed him over 1,000 career yards. The two drives took a combined 12-minutes, 30 seconds and gave the Red Raiders a 17-3 lead at the half. Brescia finished 175 yards on 19 keepers and was 7-for-11 passing for 48 yards. Pierce Holley was 31 of 44 for 346 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a third score for the Hoyas.
