BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Freshman Jace Wilson threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Miller and ran for a score and Dominic Roberto rushed for a career-high 216 yards as Furman held off Samford 41-34.

Trailing 7-0, Wilson and Miller connected on a two-play drive to knot the score. DiMarcus Clay picked off Liam Welch on Samford’s ensuing possession and returned it 32 yards to the Bulldogs’ 2-yard line.

Wilson ran it in from the 3 on third-and-goal for a 14-7 lead.

The Paladins (6-5, 4-4 Southern Conference) never trailed again.
