SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) Elijah Mitchell ran for 191 yards and three touchdowns and Louisiana-Lafayette snapped a three-game losing streak by topping Texas State, 42-27 for its first Sun Belt victory of the season Saturday night.

The Ragin' Cajuns now are unbeaten in seven games all-time against Texas State and have outscored the Bobcats 103-40 in three games in San Marcos.

Trey Ragas, who finished with 100 yards on 21 carries, got the Cajuns on the board by punching in from the 1 in the first quarter. Mitchell scored on a pair of runs in the second quarter to help push the lead to 28-0 at intermission.

Tyler Vitt threw 36 yards to Jeremiah Haydel and caught a five-yard touchdown pass from Hutch White to get the Bobcats (1-4, 0-2) to 28-13, but UL-Lafayette (2-3, 1-1) answered with a six-yard run by Mitchell.

Vitt finished 28 of 39 for 296 yards and three touchdowns after hitting Keenen Brown for two scores in the fourth quarter.
