SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -Kevious Johnson and Andy Strickland had two touchdowns each and the defense had five interceptions to lead Wofford to a 52-24 win Saturday night against Charleston Southern.
The Terriers (2-0) had 448 yards of total offense, including an 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Mike Rucker.
The Buccaneers (0-2) were led by Eli Byrd, who went 28 of 46 for 264 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
