Louisiana-Lafayette scores 2 TDs in final 3:08 to edge Louisiana-Monroe

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Alonzo Harris only had 10 rushing yards in

the game, but three of those came for a touchdown on

Louisiana-Lafayette's final offensive play with 1:06 left to seal a

36-35 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

That score was one of two by the Ragin' Cajuns (8-2, 6-1 Sun

Belt Conference) in the game's final two minutes, the other coming

on Blaine Gautier's 16-yard pass to Darryl Surgent, to seal the

comeback win. The Ragin' Cajuns secured an onside kick after their

first touchdown of the fourth quarter to set the stage for their

game-winner less than a minute later.

Louisiana-Lafayette failed to punch in two-point conversion

attempts on both scores.

Jyruss Edwards ran in a 3-yard score to put the Warhawks (2-7,

1-4) up 35-24 with 3:08 to play, setting up their in-state rivals'

comeback.

Gautier passed for 355 yards and four touchdowns for

Louisiana-Lafayette.
