The Citadel slips past Furman 42-35 in OT

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Aaron Miller threw for two touchdowns and ran in two more, including the game winner in overtime, to lift The Citadel to a 42-35 win over Furman on Saturday.

Trailing 35-28 with 3:57 to go, the Bulldogs (4-6, 2-3 Southern Conference) drove 80 yards in seven plays, including a 45-yard gain on Miller's pass to Jonathan Dorogy, to tie the game on a 6-yard touchdown run from Tyler Renew. The Citadel then held Furman (2-8, 1-4) to force overtime.

Miller, who finished 8 of 13 for 142 yards passing and added 91 yards on the ground with 19 carries, opened the OT period with a 12-yard scramble and kept the ball on five of the next six snaps to cover another 7 yards, punching in the winning score from the 2. The defense then held Furman to just a yard on four attempts for the win.
