The Bulldogs (3-2, 1-1 SoCon) threatened twice in the first quarter, driving deep into Wofford territory on their next possession. But the drive was stopped on the Wofford 13 when Duran Lawson's pass intended for Tory Cooper was incomplete.
Lawson went 26-of-43 for 222 yards to lead the Bulldogs. Dwight House had a 42-yard interception return to give The Citadel its only score of the night.
Andre Roberts caught 12 passes for 123 yards for the Bulldogs. Tory Cooper led The Citadel in rushing with 71 yards on 19 carries.
