College lacrosse Watch No 19 Georgetown vs No 9 Denver on CBS Sports

Georgetown lacrosse has been solid this season

Georgetown lacrosse has been solid this season, as the No. 19 team in the country was handed just its second loss last Saturday by Marquette. Prior to that game, Georgetown had won five straight games, so on Saturday it’ll try to avoid going on its first losing streak in a 7-2 season.

That won’t be easy, as the Hoyas find themselves going up against the Denver Pioneers. Denver lost its last game to Princeton, but had a four-game winning streak before that loss. The Pioneers are now 5-3 on the season, and ranked ninth in the country.

Don’t be deceived by Denver’s seemingly pedestrian record though. Its losses have come to Duke, Ohio State and Princeton, and it has a win against Towson. Denver can play with some of the best teams in the country, so it won’t be slouching against a very talented Georgetown team.

Here’s how to watch the Hoyas and Pioneers go at it.

A player who was truly ahead of his time, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Taylor was one of the first receivers to fully use his physicality to his advantage. In 1965, Taylor spurned the NFL (he was drafted by the Eagles with the 203rd pick in the NFL draft) to play for the AFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. In his second season, Taylor led the AFL in average yards per catch while helping lead the Chiefs to the first-ever Super Bowl. The AFL’s leader in touchdown catches the following season, Taylor helped the Chiefs capture their first Super Bowl win at the end of the 1969 season. His 46-yard touchdown sealed Kansas City’s 23-7 win over the Vikings, the last game ever played between the rival leagues.

Taylor’s transition to the NFL was seamless after the two leagues merged in 1970. A year after the merge, Taylor led the NFL in receiving yards while earning All-Pro honors. He earned Pro Bowl honors again in 1972 at the age of 30.

A valued member of Minnesota’s “Purple People Eaters” defensive line, Marshall holds numerous NFL records, including the most seasons played by a defensive player (20, along with Junior Seau and Darrell Green), most consecutive games by a defensive player (282), most consecutive starts by a defensive player (270), and most career fumble recoveries (30). Marshall, who was still a starter at age 42, helped the Vikings win three NFC titles along with the NFL championship in 1969.

Atlanta’s first draft pick, Nobis played on just two winning teams during his 11-year tenure with the Falcons. Despite his team’s lack of success, Nobis earned the recognition of his peers, earning five Pro Bowl selections and one All-Pro nod during his first seven seasons.

Named the NFL’s Rookie of the Year in 1966 by Sporting News, Nobis recorded a whopping 294 tackles that season. That total is not only a Falcons’ franchise record, it is unofficially the the most tackles ever credited to a player in NFL history, according to the Falcons’ team website. Nobis’ early success earned him a place on the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 1960s.
