Saturday, November 8, 2008. (AP) -- Samford survived a sluggish start and got strong performances from Chris Evans and Dustin Taliaferro to beat Georgia Southern 27-17 Saturday.

Evans, the leading rusher in the Southern Conference, ran for 142 yards, and Taliaferro was 14 of 17 for 166 yards and two touchdowns to spark the Bulldogs who trailed 10-0 after the first quarter.

Georgia Southern (5-5, 3-4 Southern Conference) had hoped a victory over the Bulldogs (5-4, 3-3) and a win at Furman next week would propel it into the Football Championship Series playoffs.
