Wofford 35, Lenoir-Rhyne 7

September 8, 1996

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) _ Michael Edens rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown to lead Wofford to a 35-7 win over Lenoir-Rhyne in a lightning-shortened game Saturday night.

The Terriers (1-1) outgained the Bears (0-1) 418 to 65 in total offense in their final game at 66-year-old Snyder Field. Wofford also had 22 first downs to just four for Lenoir-Rhyne, which had zero net yards rushing at the end of the game.

Wofford will move to Gibbs Stadium Oct. 5 for their game against Presbyterian.

Wofford quarterback Bryan Davis scored his first collegiate touchdown in the first quarter with a 21-yard quarterback keeper. Edens then scored his 4-yard touchdown on Wofford’s next series. The Terriers would score three more rushing touchdowns before the referees and coaches decided to call the game with 12:13 in the fourth quarter because of heavy lightning.

Lenoir-Rhyne’s lone score came off of one of four Wofford turnovers. A Davis pass was intercepted by Sherwin Brown and returned 34 yards to the Terrier 34 yard line.

Three plays later, Louis Manz hit Bobby Parrado for a 12-yard touchdown pass to made the score 21-7 with 49 seconds left in the second quarter.
