Wofford hopes to preserve long winning streak vs. The Citadel

Prior to the 1998 Wofford vs. The Citadel tilt, co-owners of the Spartanburg staple Beacon Drive-In, who were graduates of the respective institutions, struck a bet that would mark the advent of a conference tradition.

The good and bad of Wofford's defensive play against UVA-Wise

"Pass interference."

Those words were uttered by the official quite a bit against Gardner-Webb, as well as in last night's game against UVA-Wise, where the Terriers were flagged as such on five different occasions (although several were not enforced).

But that's not the only thing, defensively, to take away from the 49-15 triumph.

Big plays provided separation on Saturday night, but one in particular changed the game's feel

As was expected, there was no shortage of those electrifying plays that come all the more frequently when Wofford goes into a tilt against a smaller team.

The Terriers' first two possessions ended with big plays, namely a 44-yard touchdown run by Octavius Harden and a 43-yard connection from Evan Jacks to freshman Bryce Motes.

However, a particular play stands out.

Putting last night's loss into perspective

During Gardner-Webb's first two games of the season, the Runnin' Bulldogs only scored ten points.

Against a team from the United States Collegiate Athletic Association, the Virginia-Lynchburg Dragons, GWU put up 34 points in a shutout.

Last night in Spangler Stadium, the Runnin' Bulldogs put up 43 points against our Wofford Terriers.

Terrier fans have a new reason to be excited about #7

Number seven.

In years past, the mere mention of the number brought Terrier fans to their feet, hoping to witness one of Eric Breitenstein's now-famous hard-nosed rushes.

Now, Wofford fans have a new reason to cheer for #7.

Last year's shutout one of only eight during Ayers' career

It was 1987. Rick Gilstrap was busy coaching what would be his final season at Wofford. Little did he know that his replacement, an energetic Mike Ayers that was fresh from an Eastern Tennessee State job, would still be at helm of the program to this very day.

However, Ayers' career longevity wouldn't be the only thing from those times to endure.
