Delete GREENVILLE, S.C. — It was an all-or-nothing kind of day for Georgia Southern. Of the Eagles’ 440 total yards, 238 of them came on six plays, and every other yard was hard to come by as the third-ranked Eagles scored 35 points in the second half to knock off the Furman Paladins, 38-17, Saturday at Paladin Stadium. Most of the scoring came in the second half, after Furman (2-6, 1-4 Southern Conference) led, 7-3.
