Wofford sets 2011 schedule

Spartanburg, SC (Sports Network) - Wofford hopes the 2011 Southern Conference championship will run through Gibbs Stadium when it hosts powers Appalachian State and Georgia Southern next fall.

Wofford finished 10-3 in 2010 and shared the SoCon title with Appalachian State. Georgia Southern, though, went farther than both teams in the FCS playoffs, reaching the national semifinals.

Coach Mike Ayers' Terriers will open their season with road games at Presbyterian College on Sept. 3 and then at Clemson of the FBS on Sept. 10. The series with the Tigers dates to 1896 and the last meeting was in 2001.

Wofford's home games in the SoCon are against Samford (Sept. 24), Appalachian State (Oct. 1), Elon (Oct. 29) on Homecoming Day and Georgia Southern (Nov. 12).
