Wofford 19, VMI 18

LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Kevious Johnson ran 2 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter Saturday, lifting Wofford to a 19-18 victory over VMI that relegated the Keydets to the third winless season in the school's 114-year history of playing football.

Wofford (8-3) never trailed until Nat Jackson scored on a 3-yard run for the Keydets (0-11), giving them an 18-13 lead with 7:14 remaining.

Johnson's winning run capped a 61-yard drive in nine plays.

Jeff Zolman hit Brandon Berry from 25 yards out and Zolman ran for a 3-yard touchdown for Wofford. The plays were sandwiched around Sean Mizzer's 73-yard touchdown catch from Kirk Monteleone, and were Wofford's only points until Johnson's run.

Barrett Way booted a 48-yard field goal for the Keydets.

Mizzer added 73 yards on 13 carries for VMI. Monteleone finished 10-for-18 for 141 yards with one interception and was sacked three times.

Johnson led Wofford on the ground with 73 yards on 16 carries.

The Keydets' other winless seasons came in 1969 and 1997.
