Presbyterian finally gets to host Furman again

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Presbyterian has been waiting for this chance for nearly four decades.

The Blue Hose get to host Furman for the first time since 1975. The teams have played 16 times since they last met in Clinton, and the Paladins are 14-1-1 in those games in Greenville, including the last 13 in a row.

Coach Harold Nichols said Blue Hose fans can’t wait for Saturday to come so they can host their rivals who play just 45 miles up the road for just the ninth time in 53 meetings.

In other games Saturday involving South Carolina’s Football Championship Subdivision teams, Charleston Southern travels to Shorter; The Citadel is at North Carolina State; Coastal Carolina travels to Toledo; and South Carolina State is at Texas A&M.
