LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) -- Terrance Broadway threw for 258 yards and ran one in with 38 seconds left to help Louisiana-Lafayette rally and beat Western Kentucky 31-27 Saturday in a Sun Belt Conference matchup.

Broadway, who completed 23 of 33 passes, struggled early on, throwing two interceptions as the Ragin' Cajuns trailed 27-17 with six minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Louisiana-Lafayette (6-4, 4-2), which lost to Florida 27-20 last week on a blocked punt return for a touchdown with two seconds left, began its rally on its own 28-yard line.

From there, Broadway drove Louisiana-Lafayette 72 yards in 11 plays, connecting with Jamal Robinson for a 4-yard touchdown to draw the Ragin' Cajuns within 27-24.

Western Kentucky (6-5, 3-4) recovered the ensuing kickoff, but after going three-and-out, Broadway drove his team 79 yards in 52 seconds to set up his game-winning, 14-yard touchdown run.

Broadway completed 11 of his last 16 passes.
