WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Kolton Browning threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns, and Louisiana-Monroe stopped a late Wake Forest rally for a 21-19 victory Saturday.

Browning completed 43 of 68 attempts, with two interceptions, as the Warhawks (2-1) won for the first time in three tries over a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Browning threw two TD passes in the first half to stake Louisiana-Monroe to a 14-13 lead, then hit Tavarese Maye on a 9-yard score in the second half.

Tanner Price threw for 310 yards and two touchdown for the Demon Deacons (1-2), with both scores going to Orville Reynolds as Wake Forest fought back with a late drive.

Price found Reynolds with a 23-yarder with 4 seconds remaining to cut Louisiana-Monroe's lead to two points.

But Price's two-point conversion pass to Michael Campanaro, who finished with 16 catches for 177 yards, went low.
