2014 SoCon Week 4 Recap

It was a difficult day for the SoCon as a whole going a combined 2-4 on the day, 1-3 in out of conference games. For those fans creeping toward the ledge, remember Furman was 1-3 outside the SoCon last season and was able to find some magic and reach the playoffs with a share of the Southern Conference title. I wouldn’t recommend putting yourself through that “back to the wall” kind of season, but it can be done. StandingsSeason Stats Read more

2014 SoCon Week 4 Preview: Furman at SC State

Rhapsody TrialThe Furman Paladins will look to rebound from last weekend’s shocking loss to Presbyterian when they visit Orangeburg on Saturday to take on South Carolina State. The Bulldogs and Paladins faced off in the first round of the FCS playoffs last season with Furman getting the win 30-20. In that game, Furman dominated the game on the ground rushing for over 200 yards behind a breakout game from Tanner Skogen. But this is a new season and offense, particularly on the ground, has been difficult to come by. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 4 Preview: Wofford at Gardner Webb

The Wofford Terriers will continue their non-conference schedule with a trip to Boiling Springs, NC to face the Gardner Webb Bulldogs. Coach Ayers and his squad come off a weather interrupted 42-27 win over North Greenville last Saturday night in Spartanburg. The Terriers enter at 1-1 while the Bulldogs are 1-2 after beating Lynchburg for their first win of the season. GW has a playoff caliber defense, but has not found itself offensively while Wofford has moved the ball on both opponents but has been susceptible in pass defense. Something has to give, will it be GW’s defense or Wofford’s offense? Read more

The Glycenes are 0-2 on the season with losses at North Greenville and Florida Tech after finishing 8-2 in 2013. Ave Maria is also a recent start-up playing in the NAIA Sun Conference. The Bears will easily be the toughest opponent on the schedule. This is a warm up game for Coach Lamb and Mercer. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 4 Preview: The Citadel at Charleston Southern

The Citadel Bulldogs have played, without a doubt, the most difficult schedule of any SoCon squad so far in 2014. Coach Houston’s team has played FCS top 5 Coastal Carolina and FBS #1 Florida State. They will try to get into the win column on Saturday when they make the short trip to face cross town rival Charleston Southern. The Buccaneers got the win in the Bulldogs’ Johnson Hagood Stadium last year and will look to make it two in a row Saturday evening in front of the home fans. Read more

Find hats, t-shirts, and collectibles from your favorite teams!Click Here!VMI and Samford will kick off their respective conference seasons on Saturday when they face off in Birmingham. For the Keydets, the game has special significance as they play a SoCon game for the first time since leaving the Southern Conference in 2003. For the Bulldogs, they are trying to repeat as conference champs after sharing the title with Chattanooga and Furman in 2013. The winner joins Furman atop the conference standings at 1-0 while the loser will have some ground to make up.

We really haven’t seen what Samford’s offense is capable of because the levels of competition have been on each end of the spectrum. The Bulldogs struggled mightily against TCU, but cut right through Stillman on the way to a blowout win. Read more

2014 Week 3 SoCon Preview: North Greenville at Wofford

Wofford gets back to action Saturday night hosting North Greenville two weeks after opening the season with a 38-19 loss at Georgia Tech. The Terriers trailed by just 5 in the 4th quarter before successive touchdowns pushed the Jackets out to the final margin. The Crusaders won their opener over Ava Maria 45-21 after jumping out to a 31-7 halftime lead. This is an interesting contrast in offensive styles with the heavy option Terriers against the pass happy Crusaders. It is also a good test for both defenses who don’t match up perfectly in this game, it should be interesting to see how the defenses play tonight. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 3 Preview: Mercer at Stetson

Mercer played their first Southern Conference football game a week ago dropping a terrific game to Furman 25-20 in front of an enthusiastic crowd. Despite the loss, the game served as en emphatic message to the rest of the SoCon that the Bears aren’t going to be an easy win. Coach Lamb and his squad will look to move back into the win column Saturday evening in Deland, Florida visiting the Stetson Hatters who also renewed their football program in 2013. The Hatters visited Macon in 2013 coming away with a 41-14 loss in the season finale. Read more
