Thomas Warren's 37-yard Game-Winning Field Goal Earns the Sixth-Best Citadel Moment of 2012-13

THE VOTES ARE IN!

The sixth-best moment in Citadel athletics for 2012-13 goes to Thomas Warren for his game-winning 37-yard field goal, which sealed a 23-21 victory over third-ranked Georgia Southern.

Warren made a career-high three field goals against the Eagles at Johnson Hagood Stadium on Sept. 8, helping launch the Bulldogs into the top 25 FCS polls for the first time since 2008.

The win marked the highest-ranked team The Citadel has beaten since taking down No. 1 Marshall 20-3 at Johnson Hagood Stadium in 1988. The Bulldogs last defeated a Top 10 team in 1997, edging East Tennessee State 23-20 in overtime.

The victory ended a string of heartbreaking defeats for The Citadel against Georgia Southern. The Bulldogs had lost five in a row to the Eagles, but four of those losses came by a touchdown or less including a 14-12 setback in 2011.
