Today's games

November 17, 2001|By Kent Baker and Bill Free

Navy (0-8) at Notre Dame (3-5)

Site: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Ind.

Time: 2:30 p.m.

TV/Radio: Chs 11, 4/WNAV (1430 AM), WJFK (1300 AM), WMAL (630 AM)

Series: Notre Dame leads, 64-9-1

Outlook: For the 38th time since 1963, Navy will attempt to break the Irish's stranglehold on this record-breaking series. The 37 straight losses are an NCAA high to one opponent. The Midshipmen have dropped 18 of their past 19 games overall but have developed a habit of playing Notre Dame tough in South Bend. Only a questionable spot prevented Navy from winning in 1999. A good start is imperative for the Midshipmen, who have been outscored 174-59 in the first half. Notre Dame relies on sophomore quarterback Carlyle Holiday and tailbacks Julius Jones and Tony Fisher.

Western Maryland (8-2) at Washington & Jefferson (10-0) First round, Division III playoffs

Time: Noon

Site: Cameron Field, Washington, Pa.

Series: Washington & Jefferson leads, 2-0

Radio: WTTR (1470 AM)

Outlook: The Green Terror, making its fifth straight appearance in the Division III tourney, hasn't gotten past the second round. This game will be a showdown between Terror senior QB Jamie "Boo" Harris and Presidents junior QB Brian Dawson. Harris has thrown for 1,595 yards and 21 touchdowns. Dawson has racked up 2,553 yards passing.

Bowie St. (6-3) at Cheyney St. (0-9)

Time: Noon

Site: O'Shields-Stevenson Field, Cheyney, Pa.

Series: Bowie leads, 9-8

Outlook: The game is kind of secondary to the excitement surrounding Bowie State defensive end Charles Alston's whirlwind exploits as he tries to become possibly the first person to play football and basketball games on the same day. The football game appears to be a mismatch.

Towson (2-7) at Georgetown (3-6)

Time: 12:30 p.m.

Site: Kehoe Field, Washington

Series: Towson leads, 1-0

Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: Towson has lost five straight but has a good chance to beat the Hoyas, who are 0-5 in their first Patriot League campaign.

Morgan St. (2-8) at Hampton (6-4)

Time: 1 p.m.

Site: Armstrong Stadium in Hampton, Va.

Series: Morgan leads, 33-14-2

Radio: WEAA (88.9 FM)

Outlook: Morgan running back Ali Culpepper needs only 34 yards today in the final game of his Morgan career to pass Bobby Hammond as the school's all-time leading rusher.
