SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Jerome Felton's touchdown run with less
than three minutes to go gave Furman a 31-24 win over Wofford on
Felton scored two touchdowns on just four carries and Ingle
Martin was 20-of-28 for 283 yards to move the Paladins (8-2, 5-1
Southern Conference) closer to a Division I-AA playoff bid.
If Furman beats Chattanooga next week, the Paladins will tie
Georgia Southern for the league title but get the automatic playoff
bid because they beat the Eagles.
Jeff Zolman completed nine of his 12 passes for Wofford (7-3,
4-3), throwing for a career-high 169 yards. He also was the
Terriers leading rusher with 63 yards on 16 carries.
The Terriers remain in the playoff hunt, but must beat VMI next
week for any chance at an at-large bid.
Zolman's two touchdown runs gave Wofford a 14-0 lead at the end
of the first quarter.
But Furman climbed back into it, taking a 24-17 lead on Felton's
first touchdown halfway through the fourth quarter.
The Terriers quickly tied it on a three-play drive that included
a a 73-yard pass to Matt Beavin.
Wofford's Jason Leventis would then recover a fumble on the
Furman 28, but Zolman's pass to Aaron Johnson on fourth-and-2 went
over his head at the goal line.
The Paladins then drove 80 yards in five plays for the winning
score. The big blow came on a 62-yard pass to Isaac West on a
third-and-8. West had six catches for 132 yards.
