Georgia Southern survives Wofford rally to advance in FCS playoffs

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Georgia Southern's Jaybo Shaw ran 15 times for 60 yards and threw for a touchdown as the Eagles beat Wofford 23-20 on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

Georgia Southern (10-4) led 20-3 at the half and was able to withstand a furious comeback by the Terriers (10-3) to win their sixth straight game.

The Terriers hurt themselves with mistakes. They turned the ball over on their first two possessions, leading to touchdowns. And they lost a chance for a final drive with a face mask after appearing to stop the Eagles on third down with 2 minutes left.

Georgia Southern advances to the semifinals for the first time since winning its sixth national title in 2002. The Eagles travel to No. 3 seed Delaware next week.
