ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Jon Croft Hollingsworth's school-record 55-yard field goal propelled Furman University to a stunning 16-15 win over the University of Central Florida.
Hollingsworth's kick, the longest successful field goal in Bright House Networks Stadium history, gave the Paladins (1-2) their first victory of the season and first over an FBS team since a 1999 win over North Carolina.
UCF (0-3), which unsuccessfully mixed three quarterbacks in the lineup to replace injured started Justin Holman, lost to a FCS team for the first time since the Knights moved up to FBS in 1996. UCF had beaten FCS teams 20 straight times before losing to Furman.
Furman's Reese Hannon completed 15 of 29 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown, a 61-yard bomb to Andrej Suttles that gave Furman its first lead of the game early in the third quarter.
Trey Robinson iced the win with an interception with 49 seconds remaining.
