Recap: Louisiana vs. South Alabama

Lafayette, LA (Sports Network) - Terra Broadway threw a pair of touchdowns and ran for another as he helped guide the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns to a commanding 52-30 win over the South Alabama Jaguars in Sun Belt Conference play at Cajun Field.

Broadway finished the contest 11-of-19 through the air for 305 yards, adding another 65 yards on 13 rushing attempts for the Ragin' Cajuns (7-4, 5-2 Sun Belt) as they posted their second straight win and the third in the last four outings. Effrem Reed accounted for a game-high 81 yards and two scores on 17 carries.

The Jaguars (2-10, 1-7), losers of five in a row, were paced by Ross Metheny who converted 27-of-44 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns.

USA scored the first points of the meeting when Jlian Valentin capped an eight-play, 75-yard opening drive with a one-yard TD run to give the visitors a 7-0 advantage.

However, the rest of the quarter belonged to Louisiana as kicker Brett Baer knocked through a 27-yard field goal, Broadway hooked up with Harry Peoples on a 75-yard TD pass and Reed slipped into the end zone on a 19-yard run to give the Ragin' Cajuns a 17-7 advantage.

The Jaguars fought back in the second frame thanks to kicker Michel Chapuseaux who converted field goal attempts of 45, 33, and 50 yards in the period to bring the team to within a point of Louisiana.

But before the first half could draw to a close, Broadway found Javone Lawson with a 27-yard TD strike to make the score 24-16 at the break.

Louisiana added a pair of touchdowns in the third, courtesy of a one-yard run by Reed and a six-yard run by Broadway, pushing the advantage to 38-16.

Ross made the score more respectable with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Jereme Jones late in the third and a 28-yard scoring pass to Gabe Loper midway through the fourth as well.

Unfortunately for USA, the Ragin Cajuns responded both times as Blaine Gautier tossed an 18-yard TD to Jacob Maxwell and a one-yard scoring run from Yobes Walker to close out the affair and give the home team the 22-point win.

The 52 points for the Ragin' Cajuns is the most the team has scored since posting a 59-30 win over North Texas on Oct. 11, 2008.

Both teams still have one more game on the schedule this season as the Jaguars pay a visit to Hawaii next weekend and Louisiana travels to Florida Atlantic.
