Georgia Southern was led by quarterback Jaybo Shaw who accounted for all four of their touchdowns.

Running back Dominique Swope led the the offensive attack for Georgia Southern by rushing for a career high 165 yards with an averaged 6.1 yards per carry.

The Georgia Southern defense came to play as well by shutting down Wofford's passing attack by holding them to 86 passing yards and forced two turnovers that led to seven points. Third-down stops were another key to Georgia Southern's wins as they limited Wofford to 4-for-11 on third down conversions.
