Appleberry finished with 94 yards, 41 coming in the last minute before he slid down in Wofford territory. Chase Artopoeus was 15 of 30 for 197 yards and two interceptions for the Mocs (4-1, 3-0 Southern Conference) but had a rushing touchdown. Criles' field goals were 42, 32 and 32 yards.
Bridger Jones had field goals of 41 and 47 yards to give the Terriers (0-5, 0-2) an early lead and David Legette scored on a 9-yard run in the third quarter.
