Wofford Vs. Northern Iowa Final Score, 2011 FCS Playoffs: Panthers Use Turnovers To Top Terriers, 28-21

Wofford more than doubled up No. 4 national seed Northern Iowa's total yardage and ran for 457 yards — and the Terriers still lost to the Panthers, 28-21, in the second round of the 2011 FCS playoffs.

Northern Iowa got two passing touchdowns from Tirrell Rennie, who also ran for 95 yards. But the Panthers won by capitalizing on three Wofford turnovers, and returned one fumble on a kickoff for a touchdown.

That was enough to make up for the Terriers' option attack rolling up enough yardage for Wofford to outgain Northern Iowa, 478-238. Wofford had two players run for over 100 yards — quarterback Mitch Allen had 158, while Eric Breitenstein ran for 131 yards and all three Terriers touchdowns — but could not come back from a 28-14 deficit early in the fourth quarter.

Northern Iowa, which scored 21 straight points to build that lead, will move on to the third round of the FCS playoffs, and face No. 5 Montana.
