The Chattanooga Mocs have a tough conference test in front of them.

Real tough.

The #6Wofford Terriers come to Finley Stadium for a Saturday afternoon tilt.

The Mocs are coming off a tough 17-14 loss to ETSU.

Coach Tom Arth said that loss came down to a lack of execution.

However, the Mocs played an inspired second half, but came up just short.

Coach Arth is looking for four complete quarters of play out of his team.

Wofford 's defense is ranked 14th in the nation in FCS competition.

Arth knows what it will take. "We have a great challenge in our opponent coming in this week. At the end of the day, it's about us playing well. It's about us playing the best football that we can play.It's us having, you know, an incredible week of preparation."

Senior defensive lineman Derek Mahaffey echoed what his coach noted. "They're a good team, they're well respected. They're going to come in here, they're going to be physical, so you gotta prepare yourself for that during the week."

Kickoff at Finley Stadium is 3:00 PM.

The game can also be viewed on ESPN+.
