Citadel beats Furman 42-20

by Staff Reports

GREENVILLE, S.C. — The Citadel scored two touchdowns in the second half and beat The Citadel 42-20 in a key Southern Conference showdown.

The Citadel’s victory gives Georgia Southern the Southern Conference’s automatic berth into the Football Championship Subdivision. The Eagles won a tiebreaker with fellow tri-champions Appalachian State and Wofford because they allowed the fewest points in SoCon games.

The Citadel quarterback Ben Dupree completed a touchdown pass to Domonic Jones after faking a run. Dalton Trevino scored a 17-yard touchdown run with 2:14 left in the third quarter that put the Bulldogs in front 28-20. It was Trevino’s first touchdown of the season.



ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns to lift the Bulldogs past Georgia Southern Saturday.

Georgia Southern trailed 17-7 at halftime, but Georgia pulled away in the third quarter by scoring 21 points. Georgia Southern quarterback Jerick McKinnon rained 104 yards and scored two touchdowns on 19 carries.

The Eagles (8-3) finished with 297 yards rushing, but completed one pass for 16 yards.



COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to beat Wofford Saturday.

Wofford’s Eric Breitenstein gained 125 yards and scored a touchdown on 28 carries. The Terriers rushed for 259 yards on 60 carries. Quarterback James Lawson completed his lone pass for 71 yards, but not for a touchdown.

South Carolina struggled offensively. Connor Shaw completed 16-of-20 passes for just 122 yards. The Gamecocks rushed for 171 yards on 41 carries.



TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama took a 42-0 halftime lead and never looked back in its first game since a loss to Texas A&M a week earlier.
