Brett Baer's field goal gives Louisiana-Lafayette win over FAU

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Brett Baer's 26-yard field goal on the

final play lifted Louisiana-Lafayette to a 37-34 victory over

Florida Atlantic in a Sun Belt Conference game on Saturday night.

Baer also kicked field goals of 47 and 46 yards, the second of

which gave the Ragin' Cajuns (4-1, 2-0) a 34-20 lead with 7:43

remaining.

Graham Wilbert brought the Owls (0-4, 0-1) back, throwing a

5-yard scoring pass to Nexon Dorvilus and a 12-yard TD to Xavier

Stinson to tie the game with 1:48 left.

Blaine Gautier then directed the Ragin' Cajuns from their 26 to

the Florida Atlantic 9, completing 6 of 7 passes on the drive.

Gautier completed 26 of 33 in the game for 329 yards and two

touchdowns.

Wilbert finished 20-for-38 with 219 yards and three touchdowns.

His one interception gave Louisiana-Lafayette the ball at the Owls'

16, but a missed field goal by Baer ended the threat.
