The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team beat The Citadel 34-33 on Saturday at Finley Stadium to improve to 6-5 overall and 5-2 in Southern Conference play.

The Citadel is 6-5, 4-3.


For the second consecutive week, UTC senior quarterback Nick Tiano was the key. This time he led a wild comeback as the Mocs rallied from down 13 points in the final 8:49 to win a crazy game on senior day. He completed just 11 of 29 passes, but they went for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Tiano also rushed for 54 yards, including a 12-yard scramble for the tying touchdown - junior kicker Victor Ulmo made the pivotal extra point - with 28 seconds left.


24.4. That's how many yards the Mocs averaged on each of their 11 receptions against the Bulldogs.
