Terriers set for home opener against North Greenville

As the Terriers prepare to open the 2014 home slate with a 7 P.M. (Eastern Time) kickoff against the North Greenville Crusaders, let's take a look at some points of interest coming into tomorrow evening's matchup.


  • The Terriers have won thirteen straight home openers - the last loss was in 2000 (Lehigh, 34-14), the same year that Wofford recorded their first and only win over an FBS opponent (UL-Monroe, 24-6). 
  • Two Terriers are nursing injuries from the Georgia Tech game, including redshirt freshman kicker David Marvin's well-known bone bruise and knee sprain along with Will Gay, who is listed as questionable for tomorrow's contest due to a hand injury. 
  • Evan Jacks passed for twenty-six yards (5-for-9), and Michael Weimer put up twenty-nine yards (2-for-4) against Georgia Tech.
  • Ray Smith was the big story on the ground in the Terriers' season opener, namely in a 92-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter that briefly gave Wofford the lead, but Evan Jacks showed his rushing power with 89 yards on the ground.
  • Will Irwin caught three passes for eighteen yards against Georgia Tech.
  • While kicker David Marvin is still questionable following his knee injury and bone bruise, Ben Bruggeworth, of the Terrier men's soccer team, will be available.
  • Chris Armfield made five tackles against Georgia Tech, the most of the squad. Seven others recorded four tackles, and ten players notched 1-3 tackles in the season opener.
Quick Look Preview - Wofford heads into Gibbs well-rested from an off week and relatively intact following August 30th's opener with Georgia Tech in Atlanta, while North Greenville got their season off to a late start, notching a win over Ave Maria (Fla.) last weekend.

The Crusaders displayed their pass-heavy offense last Saturday, amassing 368 yards through the air, while picking up a strong 271 yards on the ground in their 45-21 victory.

Junior QB Nathan Hughes was the headliner, as he had a 15-for-25 outing, racking up 324 passing yards and three touchdowns. All three of those touchdowns were caught by Robbie Brown.
