SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Georgia Southern couldn’t play host to Saturday’s Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals game against Wofford, so the Eagles brought Paulson Stadium’s crowd on the road. An estimated 5,000 GSU fans made the trip to Gibbs Stadium as the Eagles defeated the Terriers 23-20 in front of a crowd of 11,823 to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2002 and the 11th time in program history. "We’re one of four teams left playing in the country," said senior cornerback Carson Hill, who has seen three different head coaches since becoming an Eagle in 2006.
