MONROE, La. (AP) - Terrance Broadway threw four touchdown passes and ran for another as Louisiana-Lafayette spoiled Louisiana-Monroe's bid for a perfect Sun Belt Conference record in a 40-24 win Saturday.
The Ragin' Cajuns (5-3, 3-2) climbed back from a 10-7 deficit with consecutive touchdown passes by Broadway. The first was a 52-yard pass to Jamal Robinson and the latter was a 23-yarder to Harry Peoples that put Louisiana-Lafayette up 21-10.
Louisiana-Monroe's Cody Wells responded by hitting Je'Ron Hamm for a 19-yard TD with 48 seconds left before the half, but the Warhawks (6-3, 4-1) got no closer as Broadway stretched the lead to 28-17 with an 8-yard TD run midway through the third quarter.
Broadway finished 23-of-32 passing for 373 yards and ran 14 times for 87 yards.
The loss drops Louisiana-Monroe into a tie with Middle Tennessee for first place in the Sun Belt.
