Tiny Wofford College Loses Upset to South Carolina in Final Minutes
The Wofford College Terriers couldn’t quite pull off a shocking upset like fellow Southern Conference school Appalachian State did last season against The University of Michigan, but Wofford’s game against The University of South Carolina on Saturday night was very close. In a game that was similar to the fabled Wofford-Carolina meeting in 2006, last night’s game was tied at 10-10 in the third quarter and Wofford was down just 16-13 until the final minutes of the game.
Wofford had a 15-play drive on its first possession of the game, took a 7-3 lead on the second trip and pulled to within 16-13 on a field goal by Patrick Mugan with 7:50 remaining in the fourth quarter. The pesky Wofford Terriers then kept nipping at South Carolina’s heels and just wouldn’t go away. But South Carolina managed to score a touchdown in the final two minutes to pull out a last-minute 23-13 victory over Wofford before 76,600 football fans at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina.
Wofford out-gained South Carolina on the ground, and Carolina committed three turnovers in the game. The Terriers are now 2-1 in the season, while South Carolina is 2-2.
