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. The Ragin' Cajuns secured an onside kick after their first touchdown of the fourth quarter to set the stage for their game-winner less than a minute later.
Louisiana-Lafayette failed to punch in two-point conversion attempts on both scores.
Jyruss Edwards ran in a 3-yard score to put the Warhawks (2-7, 1-4) up 35-24 with 3:08 to play, setting up their in-state rivals' comeback.
Gautier passed for 355 yards and four touchdowns for Louisiana-Lafayette.
