Spartanburg, SC (Sports Network) - Wofford's Eric Breitenstein scored on a 2- yard run in overtime to lift the Terriers to a 16-13 win over Chattanooga and to a share of the Southern Conference title on Saturday.

The 13th-ranked Terriers (8-2, 6-2) surely clinched an FCS playoff bid and will share the title with at least Georgia Southern and perhaps Appalachian State as well.

Nick Pollard 27-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime gave Chattanooga a 13-10 lead.

No. 13 Wofford (8-2, 6-2) 16, Chattanooga (5-5, 4-3) 13, OT

Wofford likely rescued its FCS playoff life and clinched a share of the Southern Conference title with an overtime win.

The Terriers end their regular season at South Carolina next Saturday.

No. 14 Central Arkansas (8-2, 6-1 Southland), Idle

The playoff-bound Bears end the regular season by hosting Eastern Illinois in a non-conference game Nov. 17.

No. 15 Illinois State (8-2, 5-2 Missouri Valley)

A win over defending FCS national champion North Dakota State on Nov. 17 would put an exclamation on the Redbirds' regular season.

No. 18 Indiana State (7-3, 5-2 Missouri Valley), Idle

Delaware (5-4, 2-4 CAA) at No. 20 Richmond (6-3, 4-2), 3:30 p.m.

No. 23 UT Martin (7-2, 5-1 OVC) at Tennessee Tech (2-7, 0-6), 2:30 p.m.

A playoff bid could be on the line for both teams when the Tigers visit UT Martin on Nov. 17.

Penn (5-4, 5-1 Ivy) 30, No. 25 Harvard (7-2, 4-2) 21

Penn clinched at least a share of the Ivy League by limiting Harvard, which entered the game ranked No. 3 in scoring offense (42 ppg) and No. 4 in total offense (508 ypg) in the FCS, to 295 yards. The Quakers picked off Crimson quarterback Colton Chapple twice.

Penn signal-caller Billy Ragone threw two touchdowns before he left with an injury. Andrew Holland also threw for a touchdown.

To earn a nine outright championship under veteran coach Al Bagnoli, Penn must defeat Cornell next Saturday or have both Harvard and Princeton, who are both 4-2 in the league, lose games.
