Charleston Southern 38, Citadel 35 (2OT)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Nick Ellis kicked a 26-yard field goal in the second overtime as Charleston Southern beat The Citadel 38-35 on Saturday night.

It's the first win for the Buccaneers over the Bulldogs in four tries.

Colin Drafts threw five touchdowns, going 24-of-35 for 320 yards for Charleston Southern (2-0). He also was the team's leading rusher with 35 yards on nine carries. Maurice Price caught 12 passes for 130 yards and two scores.

Citadel kicker Blake Vandiver had what would have been a game-winning field goal blocked on the last play of regulation and pushed a field goal wide in the first possession of the second overtime.

Charleston Southern led 14-0 at half and 28-14 in the fourth quarter before the Bulldogs (0-2) got two touchdowns in five minutes to tie the game at 28.

Duran Lawson completed 21 of his 27 passes for 205 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions for The Citadel. Nuru Goodrum ran 20 times for 76 yards and two touchdowns, while Tory Cooper ran for 48 yards on nine carries, scoring twice.
