For the third consecutive year, Columbia and Georgetown Football will compete in the Lou Little Cup. Established in 2015 with the winner earning bragging rights to the Lou Little Trophy, the namesake Lou Little served as the head football coach at both institutions. Little coached at Georgetown from 1924-30 and helped bring the Hoyas into the modern era as he recorded a 41-12-13 record over six seasons, while also serving as athletics director. His .759 winning percentage is still the highest among GU head coaches who have coached more than 20 games. Little took over at Columbia in 1930 and continued his Hall of Fame career until 1956. At Columbia, he posted 110 victories and his most notable win at Columbia came in the 1934 Rose Bowl, when the Lions defeated Stanford 7-0. Overall, his teams won 149 games, lost 122 and tied 11. The two schools signed on to play a 10-game series in 2015.
