WASHINGTON (AP) -- Dante Ross returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and Bucknell overcame six turnovers in a 35-19 victory over Georgetown on Saturday afternoon.
Frank Lazio caught a touchdown pass and Kenny Davis and Daris Wilson ran for scores for the Bison (3-1, 1-0 Patriot League), who have won three straight.
Matt Barbiasz and Maurice Banks returned interceptions for touchdowns for the Hoyas (1-4, 0-3 Patriot League). Barbiasz's 99-yard return was the longest in school history.
Bucknell fumbled on its first two offensive plays and Georgetown's Sheldon Epps recovered a poor option pitch on the second. Two plays later, Emir Davis scored from 1 yard out for a 7-0 lead.
Wilson threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Lazio on the second quarter's first play. Midway through the period, three plays after a penalty had wiped out Wilson's touchdown scamper, Barbiasz cut in front of Nisan Trotter and raced down the Bison sideline for a 13-7 Hoya lead.
Ross retaliated with a 97-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff, then returned the second-half kickoff 85 yards for his second score, setting a Patriot League record. He finished with three kickoff returns for 198 yards.
Banks' 11-yard interception return got Georgetown within 21-19, but a two-point conversion attempt failed. But Kenny Davis capped off a 14-play, 69-yard drive with a 1-yard run with 9:53 remaining in the fourth.
Wilson ran 20 yards for the final Bison touchdown.
