      “We knew it was going to be a battle playing a Southern Conference
game right out of the gate,” said Furman head coach Bobby Lamb. “We
handled Elon pretty well the last two years, but we knew they would come
in here fighting, and they did. It was battle, but we’re very happy right
now.”
      “We came down here to win a ball game, and obviously we didn’t get
that done,” said Elon head coach Al Seagraves. “We made some improve-

from this game, and we’ll become a good football team.”                                             NDIVIDUAL STATISTICS

        Whitehurst completed 23-of-31 pass attempts, and connected on a
72-yard strike to Airese Curry in the first quarter to stake the Tigers to a
14-0 lead. In addition, he was credited with a freakish nine-yard touchdown
pass to Duane Coleman with less than a minute to go in the first half to
stretch the Tigers’ advantage to 28-7.
        On the play Whitehurst’s pass was batted by Furman defensive end
Travis Jones and gathered in by Clemson offensive tackle William Henry,
who advanced the ball five yards before fumbling at the Furman nine. At
that point Coleman scooped up the ball and ran it into the end zone with

      “It certainly took a long time before we got this one in the barn,” said
Furman head coach Bobby Lamb. “Richmond battled us all the way, but we
were very inconsistent offensively until our final two possessions. I thought
our defense played well after the first series when they ran it down our
throats. We got after them pretty good after that.”
      “We really didn’t seem to stop them when we needed to,” said Rich-
mond head coach Jim Reid. “I thought we played hard but weren’t physical
enough. This was a very physical game.”
      Furman outgained Richmond 383-278 and totaled 244 yards on the
ground behind senior tailback Hindley Brigham’s 20-carry, 110-yard per-

plays netted only four yards, the Spiders got a break when Furman was
flagged for roughing the kicker, giving Richmond a first down at the Pala-

pretty well, particularly on defense, but the second half was really sloppy
with all the turnovers. We made several big plays when we needed them
and rushed for almost 400 yards. That’s pretty good, but we’ve still got
plenty of work to do.”
      “We stopped them on their first possession, but a penalty on fourth

      Bo Moore, Furman’s junior quarterback from Madison, Ga., completed
14-of-18 passes for 219 yards in the contest and ran for the Paladins' lone
touchdown, but it was his 43-yard pass to Brian Stone on a third-and-17
play from the Furman 33 with 2:30 to go that sealed the outcome.
      The Paladins outgained Western Carolina 389-230 and limited the
Catamounts to only 59 rushing yards on 21 attempts. Furman's defense,
meanwhile, contained Western Carolina quarterback Brian Gaither, limit-
ing him to only 16 completions in 34 attempts while picking off two passes.
Furman hogged the football for 38:51 to Western Carolina's 21:09.
      Furman fell behind early when a fumbled option pitch was recovered
by Western Carolina's Rod Dunlap at the Paladin 30. From there the Cata-
mounts covered the distance in seven plays and scored on a 4-yard run by
Manny DeShauteurs to grab a 7-0 lead
      Furman answered with an eight-play, 55-yard scoring drive that in-
cluded a 31-yard run by Brigham. Six plays later, Marshall hit the first of his   INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS

pass from Gaither to Xavier Godard with 10:28 left in the game. The PAT

drives ended in fumbles at the ASU 10 and 16, and a third possession
netted a 27-yard Danny Marshall field goal with 2:40 to go in the game, but
only after Furman, trailing 13-7 at the time and with backup quarterback
Josh Stepp on the field, had driven to the Mountaineer 1 before being
penalized for illegal substitution on second down.
       Both teams lost four fumbles, but it was Appalachian State that took
most advantage of the turnovers.
       A Stovall sack and fumble recovery at the Furman 40 helped put the
Mountaineers on the board. After a 13-run by Alan Atwater to the 27,
Rockhold’s 42-yard field goal gave Appalachian State a 3-0 lead less than

and 19-yard burst by Lamar Rembert to the Mountaineer 6 keyed Furman’s
first score of the game, which came three plays later when quarterback Bo
Moore connected with Isaac West on a 6-yard scoring strike to make it 7-
3 lead with 9:03 in the first quarter.
       Furman’s problems in the red zone began shortly thereafter when
the Paladins failed to capitalize on a fumble recovery by Cedrick Ritter at
the Appalachian State 24. A 20-yard pass from Moore to Bratton moved
the Paladins to the Mountaineer 2, but ASU’s Daniel Traylor stripped Furman
fullback Al Means of the ball, and it was recovered by Corey Lynch at the
line of scrimmage to end the Paladin threat.
       Midway through the second quarter Appalachian State mounted its
most impressive drive of the game, covering 80 yards in 10 plays for a 1-
yard touchdown plunge by quarterback Richie Williams and a 10-7 lead
with 4:26 to go in the half.                                                                                                            TEAM STATISTICS

difference in the game came down to a bad snap on a PAT attempt after
Furman redshirt freshman quarterback Josh Stepp scrambled on fourth
down for a 3-yard touchdown run with 3:06 to play to make it 10-9. The
snap bounced once to holder Jeremiah Van Dora, who couldn’t gather it in
for placekicker Danny Marshall. Van Dora’s attempt to scramble ended
when he was tackled by Marcus Cohen.
       The victory snapped a four-game Furman series winning streak and
marked only the second Bulldogs’ triumph over the Paladins in the last
nine games. It also was The Citadel’s first win over Furman in Charleston
since 1993. The setback marked the Paladins’ first back-to-back losses
in league play since 1998.
       “We just came up a little short again. That’s been the story two
weeks in a row,” said Furman head coach Bobby Lamb. “We didn’t ex-
ecute the snap on the extra point. It was low, and we just couldn’t pick it
up and kick it through. I was proud of my team going out in the second          INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS

end zone when Stepp, on a fourth and goal play at the 3, scrambled around
left end and into the end zone for the score to make with 10-9.
       After the missed PAT, Furman failed to recover the onside kick, and
the Bulldogs effectively ran down the clock and used a 40-yard punt by
Travis Zobel to the Furman 16 with only 12 seconds left in the contest.
       After a scoreless first quarter, The Citadel got on the board with an
impressive 14-play, 99-yard drive that ended when quarterback Willie
Simmons scrambled around left end and into the end zone for a 3-yard
touchdown run with 8:04 to go in the first half.
       The Bulldogs appeared to be set to take the 7-0 lead into halftime,
but a costly Furman turnover in the final seconds led to the game’s deci-
sive points. After starting a possession at its own 2 with 1:36 to go before
intermission, Furman picked up a huge first down with a 9-yard run by
Stepp to the 18. Two plays later, however, Stepp’s pass was picked off by
Travis Hodge and returned to the Furman 21. On first down a Simmons                                                       TEAM STATISTICS

up a lot today. He made plays with his arm and his legs.”
      “I felt like our team could come in here and compete and have a
chance to win,” said East Tennessee State head coach Paul Hamilton. “I
really think five or six plays today determined the game. We gave up too
many third and longs, and offensively we had a lot of chances to score but
didn’t capitalize.”

      The Terriers sealed the victory after Furman failed to handle a low
snap on a what would have been a game winning 51-yard field goal at-
tempt by Danny Marshall with 1:17 left in the game. The Paladins drove 34
yards to the Wofford 32, but Marshall never got a chance to kick the ball
after the snap bounced to holder Jeremiah Van Dora, who was tackled for
a 13-yard loss.
      The victory halted a four-game Wofford losing streak to Furman and
marked the Terriers’ first victory in Paladin Stadium and first triumph in
Greenville since 1970.
      “This was a great, tough, hard-nosed, old fashioned football game,”
said Ayers. “This gave us a taste of the playoffs. Furman is great team. Our
kids were are able to go hard the whole game. Offensively, we were just
hunting and pecking, and we had some opportunities but let them get
away. We’ve got a bunch of kids that nobody believed in, except us. It’s all             INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS

10 plays for the game’s only touchdown, which came on a fourth down, 1-
yard touchdown plunge by quarterback Jeff Zolman with 8:52 left in the
first quarter.
      Furman made it a 7-3 game with a 19-yard Danny Marshall field goal
with 3:56 to go in the first quarter to complete a 12-play, 72-yard drive.
      The Paladins moved 71 yards to the Wofford 11 on their final posses-
sion of the first half, but Marshall missed a 28-yard field goal, keeping it a 7-

      Marshall got a second chance later in the contest when he converted
a 26-yard attempt with 14:09 left in the contest and, in the process, be-
