Wofford (4-3) at The Citadel (2-5), 4:00

With a pair of I-A losses to go with defeats against Appalachian State, Georgia Southern and Furman, the Bulldogs probably aren’t as bad as the 2-5 record indicates. The Citadel took Furman to triple overtime, and held Mississippi to three yards per carry in a 27-7 loss. Georgia Southern put up big numbers on the ground a week ago, but The Citadel’s run defense is capable of slowing down Wofford’s attack. Under first-year head coach Kevin Higgins, the Bulldog offense is coming along as well. With their toughest games behind them, the Bulldogs figure to produce an inspired effort at home. They catch Wofford at the right time, too. The Terriers were humbled in a 49-17 loss to Appalachian State, and haven’t played all that well since an upset win against Georgia Southern. Wofford plays its last four games away from home, and isn’t likely to muster four wins to become playoff eligible. The Citadel is improving, and will end Wofford’s faint hopes with a win at home. Prediction: The Citadel 20, Wofford 17
