2022 FCS Season Preview: Wofford

Wofford won their first game of the season in 2021 with a field goal late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Terriers, that would be the high-water mark on the season. They proceeded to lose their last 10 games. The Terriers had a bad recipe last year when they scored 20 points a game and allowed 34.

Wofford never got going on offense. Irvin Mulligan was the only consistent performer and the Terriers never settled on a quarterback all season, completing only 51% of their passes. The defense allowed 229 yards per game and 5.3 yards per carry, struggling all season. Both sides of the ball will have to be much better this season.

Impact Players

RB Irvin Mulligan was the only consistent performer on offense with 869 yards and eight touchdowns. Despite being the focal point of the offense, Mulligan still averaged 6.9 yards per carry. With more help on offense, Mulligan could have a huge year.

WR Alec Holt had five of the nine touchdown catches for the Wofford offense. Without a capable quarterback, Holt’s talents are lost in this offense.

QB Jimmy Weirick will probably be the starter in 2022. He played in two games in 2021 and missed the rest to injury. He played ok in the 2021 spring season. If he can stabilize the QB position, Wofford will be better than last season.

Key Game: November 19 at Furman

Worst Case: The quarterback position remains unsettled and the Terriers finish at the bottom of the SoCon standings again

Best Case: The offense runs through Mulligan and the defense can get their output to under 30 points per game and Wofford returns to the top half of the SoCon standings.
