SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Dane Romero rushed for 146 yards and three touchdowns to lead Wofford to a 33-28 victory over The Citadel on Saturday.

Wofford's Ben Widmyer was 6 of 7 for 130 yards and a 57-yard touchdown pass to Andy Strickland, and rushed for 79 yards and a 20-yard touchdown run.

The Citadel (3-7, 1-6) cut Wofford's lead to 26-21 on Terrell Dallas' 1-yard run with 6:34 left in the third quarter, but Widmyer scored to increase the lead to 33-21 with 10:56 left in the game.
