It was anything put pretty, and at times downright nerve-wracking, yet coach Billy Napier and Louisiana-Lafayette finally got the best of Appalachian State. No. 20 Louisiana-Lafayette overcame three snaps that sailed over the punter's head and another bad one on a extra point to beat their Sun Belt rival 24-21 for the first time on a cold, rainy Friday night when the Mountaineers' Chandler Staton missed a 30-yard field goal with 2 seconds left. Running back Trey Ragas scored three touchdowns, and Levi Lewis threw for 101 yards and a touchdown and ran for 77 yards to help the Ragin' Cajuns (9-1, 7-1 Sun Belt) beat Appalachian State (7-3, 5-2) for their sixth straight win.
