Holy Cross humbles Georgetown, 45-7 in season finale

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) Gabe Guild ran for two first-quarter touchdowns on his only carries of the game and Peter Pujals threw for two more as Holy Cross built a 31-0 lead in the first half and cruised to a 45-7 win over Georgetown Saturday to close out its regular season.
