Furman 28, Chattanooga 22 (OT)

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Jordan Sorrells threw for 335 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning 23-yard strike to Cedrick Gipson in overtime, to lead Furman to a 28-22 Southern Conference win against Chattanooga on Saturday.

Sorrells' game winning pass came after Andrew Thacker intercepted Chattanooga quarterback Matt Lopez's pass in the end zone on the Mocs' first overtime possession.

Chattanooga (3-5, 2-3) looked to have the game sewed up in regulation after Lopez connected with Michael Johnson on a 35-yard touchdown strike with 1:35 to go. John Parkinson's two-point conversion catch put the Mocs ahead 22-19.

But Furman (6-2, 4-0 SoCon) forced overtime on a 23-yard field goal from Scott Beckler on the final play of regulation.

"That was a thriller, no doubt about it," said Furman head coach Bobby Lamb. "We had our backs against the wall in the second half with a backup quarterback in there, Jerome Felton on the bench and Chattanooga getting after us, but I thought we handled the pressure well and made the plays when we needed them."

Sorrells, a redshirt freshman making only his second career start for an injured Renaldo Gray, completed 22 of 39 passes. His 335 yards tied the school single-game record for a freshman.
