Louisiana-Lafayette downs Tulane 24-21 in New Orleans Bowl

NEW ORLEANS – Corey Trim returned an interception 82 yards for a touchdown, Hunter Stover hit a go-ahead 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, and Louisiana-Lafayette held off Tulane 24-21 on Saturday night for its third straight New Orleans Bowl victory.

Tulane set up for a 48-yard field goal try in the final seconds, but Cairo Santos, the 2012 Lou Groza award winner as the nation’s best kicker, missed just left.

Elijah McGuire and Alonzo Harris each had touchdowns runs for the Ragin’ Cajuns (9-4), who led 21-0 on Trim’s interception of Nick Montana. But Tulane rallied to tie it at 21 on three TD runs by Orleans Darkwa.

Terrance Broadway played with a cast on his broken right – and throwing – arm, passing for 143 yards and running for 33.

Devin Powell replaced Montana in the first half and passed for 223 yards for Tulane (7-6).
