Last time Wofford faced ETSU on gridiron was historic

In 2000, Wofford heated up in ice storm

Wofford's history against FBS opposition is rocky, dashed with a hint of heartbreak.

Since moving up to Div. I-AA in 1995, the Terriers are just 1-20 against upper division teams and have dropped seventeen straight such games since 2000.

Although Wofford 'ran out of time' in NCAA tournament, they made it worthwhile

They get it. With dejected faces and stunned, yet respectful dispositions, the Wofford men’s basketball team made their way past the handshake line, the raucous din of the crowd, the loss. The feeling of the loss, that is. Suffering a setback in a game is one thing; you can learn from your mistakes, implement, improve – we’ve all heard the story.
