WASHINGTON -- Marcello Trigg threw two second-half touchdown passes and Andrew Lair for 122 yards and a score to lead Bucknell to a 27-24 win over Georgetown on Saturday.

Trigg threw a 15-yard touchdown to Shaun Pasternak in the third quarter. The extra point was missed, but following a Hoyas turnover, Pasternak caught a 15-yard passing score from Trigg to put the Bison 4-2, 1-0 Patriot League) ahead 27-17 in the fourth.

The Hoyas (1-4, 0-3) cut the lead to 27-24 with 3:48 remaining in the fourth when James Brady found Collin Meador for a 5-yard touchdown, but Georgetown pulled no closer.

Trigg, who came off the bench after starting the Bison's first five games, finished 13-of-20 for 137 yards and also scored on an 8-yard run just before halftime. Pasternak caught six passes for 81 yards.

Lair started the scoring just 47 seconds into the Bison's conference opener when he raced for a 58-yard touchdown run. The Bison improved to 3-0 on the road.

Quarterback Keerome Lawrence rushed for 95 yards on nine carries and scored twice in the first half on runs of 39 and 37 yards. The Hoyas took a 10-7 lead -- their first of the season -- on a 32-yard field goal by Jose Pablo Buerba in the second quarter.
