Willoughby racked up a career-high 14 tackles, including two for loss and a sack, as Elon stymied The Citadel's triple option offense in a 35-28 triumph.

He opened the scoring with a 42-yard field goal, had 10 points and pinned Merrimack within its 20 on his lone 43-yard punt. Cole kicked a game-ending 31-yard field goal in the Northeast Conference squad's 26-23 win at Fordham.
