Furman responded with a 29-yard touchdown pass from Blazejowski to Logan McCarter and The Citadel (5-5, 3-5) followed that up with a 61-yard touchdown grab by Cam Jackson to make it 49-14 with 6:56 left in the third.

Wilcox finished with 106 yards rushing on 12 carries, including a 55-yard run for his second touchdown of the game. Dirks scored with touchdown runs from the 9 and the 26.
