Holy Cross looks to snap four game losing streak

Just a days after firing head coach Tom Gilmore, the Holy Cross Crusaders football team (2-5, 1-1 PL) will face the (3-4, 1-1 PL) Colgate at Fitton Field.

The Crusaders announce the move on Sunday, October 15. Offensive coordinator Brian Rock will take over as head coach.

"These are never pleasant decisions, but ultimately I believe this is the best course of action for our student-athletes and for the success of our football program moving forward," said athletic director Nathan Pine. 

Game time is set for 12 p.m.

Holy Cross vs Colgate

Saturday’s game will mark the 80th meeting all-time between the two programs with Holy Cross holding a 40-34-5 advantage.

However, the last meeting in October of 2016 went to Colgate, they beat the Crusaders 26-8.

Holy Cross Offense

The Crusaders offense comes as the 20th best passing offense in the country, averaging 273 yards per game.

Quarterback Peter Pujals has completed 167 of his 307 passes for 1,914 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season.

His top target has been wide receiver Blaise Bell, who has hauled in 35 catches for 437 yards and five touchdowns, while Martin Dorsey has caught 24 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back Gabe Guild leads Holy Cross with 275 rushing yards on 60 carries.
