POSTSEASON GAME HISTORY

WOFFORD 7, NORTH DAKOTA STATE 14 NCAA FCS Quarterfinals • Dec. 8, 2011 • Fargodome FARGO, N.D. – Wofford’s season came to an end with a 14-7 loss to North Dakota State on Saturday in the Fargodome. The Terriers outgained NDSU in total offense, but were limited to a defensive touchdown in the NCAA FCS quarterfinals. The Bison advanced to host Georgia Southern in the semifinals and defeated Sam Houston State to win the national championship. The Terriers finished 9-4 on the season. For Wofford, Eric Breitenstein ended his stellar career with 135 yards on 24 carries. The Bison were led by Brock Jensen with 60 rushing yards and 13-of-18 passing for 95 yards and a touchdown. “I felt that both teams played really hard,” said head coach Mike Ayers. “For us it was a situation of lost opportunities. We had two pretty good drives, but ball security jumps up and bites us. We played well enough defensively to keep the game within a score and we fought our tails off to try and get it in there. They did a great job of blocking the field goal. We had guys that put their heart and soul into the game. It was a great game and I have a great deal of respect for North Dakota State.” The Bison had the ball to open the game and drove down the field with five first downs. The drive was capped by a one-yard touchdown run by Sam Ojuri to give NDSU a 7-0 lead with 9:37 on the clock in the first quarter. On the first drive for the Terriers, Donovan Johnson picked up a first down with a 27-yard run.
