Furman at The Citadel


Chattanooga 25, The Citadel 24 (OT)

CHARLESTON, S.C.—Every time these two teams meet, it seems to go down to the wire. For the third year in a row, the Chattanooga Mocs gutted out a one-point win against The Citadel. This time the 18th-ranked Mocs needed a two-point conversion in overtime to take down the Bulldogs 25-24 at Johnson Hagood Stadium in Charleston, S.C.

After allowing The Citadel to score 10 unanswered points in the second half to tie the game at 17-17 at the end of regulation, Chattanooga needed one more play in OT to get the win. Senior QB Drayton Arnold hit sophomore TE Jay Gibson on a shovel pass in the middle to convert the game-winning, two-point conversion.
