GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Skyler Wilson’s 42-yard field goal despite swirling winds in the fourth quarter lifted Chattanooga to a 20-18 victory over Furman in clash of Southern Conference leaders.
The winning field goal was the longest for Chattanooga since Victor Ulmo kicked a 42-yarder in 2018. The No. 11 Mocs forced turnovers on Furman’s last two drives, holding the 13th-ranked Paladins scoreless over the final 7:38 to preserve the win.
Furman (3-2, 3-2) was driving after Wilson’s field goal but quarterback Hamp Sisson was picked off by Jerrell Lawson at the 23. The Paladins had another crack at winning the game after forcing a Chattanooga punt, but Sisson was sacked and fumbled.
Furman heads into its bye week before returning to action on the road against Mercer on April 3.
