GREENVLLE, S.C. -- Freshman Davis Cheek threw three touchdowns in his second-career start and Elon used a late 36-yard field goal by freshman Owen Johnson to spoil Furman's home opener Saturday, 34-31.
Furman (0-2) grabbed the lead again, but Cheek answered, hitting Lennon for a 15-yard score to tie the game, 31-31, and the Elon defense held Furman without a first down on the ensuing possession.
Elon played eight true freshmen in its opener at Toledo.
First-year Furman coach Clay Hendrix now has lost back-to-back games at his alma mater on the final play.
