ELBERTON -- Elbert County's stadium may be known as The Granite Bowl, but the real rock on Friday night proved to be Buford's defense.

The visiting second-ranked Wolves held the sixth-ranked Blue Devils to just 136 total yards and managed just enough offense of their own to pull out a 14-3 win.

Zavior Hoxie rushed for 93 yards to pace a Buford offense that managed 169 yards -- 117 of that on the ground.

Dontravious Wilson put the Wolves (1-0) ahead 7-0 in the second quarter on an 11-yard run, while Montgomery VanGorder and Thomas Wilson hooked up for the other touchdown -- a 37-yard pass in the fourth quarter that put the contest out of reach.

Ty Martin scored the only points for Elbert, booting a 31-yard field goal in the third quarter to pull within 7-3.

The Wolves defense held Clemson commit Tyshon Dye to 74 yards rushing -- 34 yards in the first half.

Buford will look to keep rolling next Friday when it plays host to Gainesville.
