Wofford College sponsors 18 sports for men's and women's programs. The Terriers also compete in the Southern Conference, and have been a part of the league since the 1997–98 academic year. Wofford and the other SoCon members play football in the Football Championship Subdivision. Prior to the 1995–96 year, the Terriers played in Division II in all sports, and until the 1988–89 period, Wofford's athletic teams were members of the NAIA. The football team plays in Gibbs Stadium. The basketball team plays in Benjamin Johnson Arena.

The Wofford campus is also the site of the training camp of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, whose owner, Jerry Richardson, is a Wofford alumnus.

The Terriers were 2003 and 2007 Southern Conference football champions. They won the 2003 title outright and shared the 2007 title with Appalachian State. Wofford claimed the league's automatic invite to the playoffs both times.

On March 8, 2010 the Wofford Terriers men's basketball team defeated Appalachian State to win the Southern Conference Tournament, marking the first time Wofford qualified to compete in the NCAA tournament.
