LAFAYETTE, La. (AP)—Terrance Broadway posted 291 all-purpose yards and Alonzo Harris ran for three touchdowns to help Louisiana-Lafayette hold off Florida Atlantic 35-21 Saturday in the season finale for both clubs.

Louisiana-Lafayette broke open a 14-all tie with a 10-play drive, which was capped by Broadway’s 15-yard touchdown pass to James Butler. The Ragin’ Cajuns extended their lead to 28-14 in the third quarter behind a 2-yarder from Harris.
FAU (3-9, 2-6) closed the gap to 28-21 in the fourth quarter but Harris’ second 2-yard score of the day sealed the win for Louisiana-Lafayette.
