LAFAYETTE, La. -- 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.
