STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) -- Jayson Foster scored a pair touchdowns in the fourth quarter to help Georgia Southern rally late in a 21-17 win over The Citadel on Saturday.
The Citadel (5-3, 3-2 Southern Conference) took a 17-6 lead into the fourth. But the Eagles (6-2, 3-2) came back strong, scoring their first touchdown of the game on Foster's 15-yard run and then completed a two-point conversion on Raja Andrews' catch.
On the Bulldogs ensuing drive, they made it into the red zone but the drive stalled and Mike Adams then missed a 29-yard field goal attempt.
Georgia Southern took advantage of the misque. Foster, who finished with 157 yards rushing, scored on an 80-yard run with 7:28 left in the game. His run tied for the sixth-longest from scrimmage in Georgia Southern history, matching an 80-yard scamper he recorded against Johnson C. Smith in 2004.
Foster also completed 11-of-16 passes for 106 yards. Lamar Lewis chipped in on the running game, gaining 82 yards on 18 carries.
The Citadel took over on its own 33 yard line with 3:33 remaining, but couldn't make anything happen.
Duran Lawson led the Bulldogs, running for 109 yards and passing for 153.
