Georgetown hosts an Ivy League school in football for the first time this Saturday when the Hoyas open their new home field with a game against Brown.
Georgetown lost to Holy Cross in Worcester last week in the Jesuit Super Bowl. HC plays Harvard and Fordham plays Columbia in other Ignatian-Ivy matchups this weekend. Meantime, BC plays Florida State. AMDG!
One of the Georgetown's earliest mascots was Stubby the terrier, above, a decorated hero of the Great War and "perhaps the most famous dog of his generation," according to the Georgetown athletic site:
The dog served 18 months on the front with his regiment in World War I, saving his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, locating wounded soldiers, and even catching a German spy by the seat of his pants. Such exploits made the front page of newspapers back home, and after Stubby's last battle at Chateau-Thierry, France, he was outfitted with a blanket with the medals and honors awarded him for bravery, with flags of all the Allied Nations of the war.
