Homecoming.  A time to remember the past and toast to the future.  A place to mingle with old friends doing new things.  And an event where one can get black out drunk and run over by a car.  Ah, college.

(More goodness after the jump)

This homecoming has special meaning, as it is the first time in over a billion years that the Georgetown football team will take the field with a winning record.  To put things in perspective, The Washington Post offers the following tidbits about today's game:

[Georgetown has] already has won as many games this season as it has the past two seasons combined.

The Hoyas, who sit atop the Patriot League standings, also have as many conference victories as they have the previous four seasons combined.

Georgetown will try to win back-to-back Patriot League games for the first time. 

The Hoyas haven't beaten Holy Cross since 1999. Last season, they led 7-6 going into the fourth quarter before giving up two touchdowns and losing, 20-7

The Rose Bowl may be out of the picture but Georgetown can still end up with a better record than any team in the woeful Big East football conference.
