Ian Thompson and Louisiana-Lafayette were too tough to bring down for Gabriel Woullard and East Carolina on Saturday in the New Orleans Bowl. The Ragin’ Cajuns won the bowl game for the second consecutive year.

NEW ORLEANS

Terrance Broadway passed for 316 yards and ran for 108, helping Louisiana-Lafayette repeat as winners of the New Orleans Bowl with a 43-34 victory against East Carolina on Saturday.

Alonzo Harris rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns for the Ragin’ Cajuns (9-4), who briefly squandered a three-touchdown lead before moving back in front for good on Broadway’s 14-yard scoring pass to Javone Lawson late in the third quarter.

Brett Baer added his second and third field goals to seal the win.

Broadway also ran for a score.

Shane Carden passed for 278 yards and two touchdowns for East Carolina (8-5) but was intercepted in Cajuns’ territory by Jemarlous Moten in the fourth quarter as ECU drove for a potential go-ahead score.

The Pirates’ Reggie Bullock rushed for 99 yards and two touchdowns.

Boise State 28, Washington 26

LAS VEGAS – Little Michael Frisina came up big for Boise State, kicking a 27-yard field goal with 1 minute, 16 seconds left to give the No. 20 Broncos a two-point victory over Washington in the Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday.

Frisina, who stands 5-5, made the winning kick after Washington had taken the lead for the first time on Travis Coons’ 38-yard field goal. Boise State (11-2) sealed the win when Jeremy Ioane intercepted Joe Southwick’s pass as the Huskies (7-6) neared midfield.

It was the third Las Vegas Bowl win in a row for the Broncos, who had to overcome a 205-yard rushing game by Bishop Sankey against a normally stingy Boise State defense.

Frisina was only 12-for-17 on field goals coming into the game, but he kicked three of them Saturday.
