The Samford football team scored 15 fourth-quarter points to overcome an 11-point deficit on its way to a 25-21 Southern Conference win at Western Carolina Saturday afternoon at E.J. Whitmire Stadium.
 
"We had enough heart to come back and win the football game, and that is what's special about this team," Samford head coach Pat Sullivan said. "Our guys have taken pride in how hard they've worked and they believe the fourth quarter is their's."
 
Through the first four games of the season, Samford has outscored its opponents, 27-6 in the fourth quarter.
 
With the win, Samford improves to 4-0 for the first time since 1995. The Bulldogs are also 2-0 in SoCon play for the first time since joining the league in 2008. Samford has now scored late in the fourth quarter to win its last three SoCon games, dating back to last season's win at The Citadel. Western Carolina falls to 1-3 overall and 0-2 in league play.
