It was the same old song and dance for the Bears against the Crimson this weekend, despite a disappointing outcome.

Quarterback Marcus Fuller ’15 runs the ball against Georgetown University. The Bears managed just three points against the Hoyas, thanks to four turnovers in opposing territory. Fuller was responsible for three, and the team will likely need to be more careful with the ball if Bruno expects to beat the Crimson.
