Furman Paladins (4-3)


East Tennessee State rallies in fourth quarter to top Furman

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Tyler Riddell threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Malik Murray with nine seconds remaining to lift East Tennessee State to a 17-13 victory over Furman on Saturday for the Buccaneers' first win in Greenville since 1997.

The winning TD came on the 14th play of an 80-yard drive when Riddle found Murray in the middle of the end zone and gave the Buccaneers (7-1, 4-1 Southern Conference) their only lead of the game.

The Paladins (4-3, 2-2) led 6-3 at halftime on two Timmy Bleekrode field goals and scored their only touchdown on Jace Wilson's 20-yard pass to Ryan Miller early in the third quarter. The Buccaneers rallied with Quay Holmes' 2-yard run to complete an 11-play, 75-yard drive late in the third quarter and Riddle's TD pass to Murray.
