CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Wofford quarterback Michael Weimer connected on the second of two touchdown passes late in the game to secure a 21-10 Southern Conference victory over The Citadel Saturday.
Weimer, who rotated with James Lawson, completed 3 of 8 passes -- two for touchdowns. His final TD strike, a 19-yarder to Will Gay, capped a 15-play, 86-yard drive that ate up 7 minutes, 39 seconds of the final quarter. Wofford rose to 1-1 overall, 1-0 in the Southern Conference.
The Citadel (0-2, 0-1) scored all 10 points in the third quarter, pulling as close as 14-10. But the Bulldogs saw two chances to close the gap end on a fumble and a loss on downs in the final minutes of the game. Thomas Warren put Citadel on the board with a 25-yard field goal, and Brandon McCladdie picked off Weimer on Wofford's ensuing possession, returning it 92 yards for the score.

Les Miles might have his best collection of secondary talent at LSU and that's saying a lot; Alabama and Florida boast talent on the back end, too.
Ezekiel Elliott steps into a great situation with Dallas, and Jack Conklin and Taylor Decker should be NFL OL starters for years.
Although coach Matt Campbell's depth chart remains a bit fluid, the Cyclones have the makings of a pretty good defense.
Look for defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei and safety Marcus Williams to play key roles again for the Utes.
