Spartanburg, SC (Sports Network) - Wofford's Eric Breitenstein scored on a 2-
yard run in overtime to lift the Terriers to a 16-13 win over Chattanooga and
to a share of the Southern Conference title on Saturday.
The 13th-ranked Terriers (8-2, 6-2) surely clinched an FCS playoff bid and
will share the title with at least Georgia Southern and perhaps Appalachian
State as well.

Chattanooga a 13-10 lead.
