CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- The Citadel scored four unanswered touchdowns in the second half, capped by a touchdown run by Darien Robinson, and defeated Chattanooga 28-27 on Saturday night.

Robinson's 3-yard run with 2:24 to play tied the game 27-27, and Ryan Sellers' extra point provided the winning margin for The Citadel (2-2, 1-2 Southern Conference).

The Bulldogs' Davis Boyle intercepted a B.J. Coleman pass at the Chattanooga 43 with 2:12 remaining to seal the win.

The Citadel was plagued by three first-half fumbles as Chattanooga built a 24-0 halftime lead. But the Bulldogs' running game took over in the second half. Ben Dupree, who ran for 83 yards and two touchdowns, led a ground attack that amassed 265 yards on 58 carries.

Coleman passed for 253 yards, including a 60-yard score to Ron Moore in the second quarter for the Mocs (2-3, 0-2). Coleman also scored on a 2-yard run.
