SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Eric Breitenstein carried the ball 23 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns to help Wofford beat The Citadel 24-21 Saturday in a Southern Conference showdown.
Wofford (7-1, 5-1) tied the game at 7-7 on the next possession when Breitenstein scored on an 8-yard touchdown run. Wofford scored the next 17 points to take a 24-7 lead into halftime.
The Citadel cut the lead to 24-14 on Darien Robinson's 44-yard touchdown run with 8:49 left in the third quarter, then scored on the first play of the fourth quarter when Van Dyke Jones ran it in from 5-yards out, cutting the lead to 24-21.
But that was the closest The Citadel would get as the Terriers stopped the Bulldogs on fourth-and-9 with 1:03 left to seal the victory.
