LAFAYETTE, La. (WAFB) - In the battle of two unbeatens in the Sun Belt Conference, it was the home-favored No. 21 Louisiana-Lafayette that had a blemish on its record when the game was over.

Senior quarterback Levi Lewis, who played his prep ball at Scotlandville High in Baton Rouge, was 14-of-24 for 173 yards and one touchdown. He also threw one interception. Lewis was also the leading rusher for the Cajuns, netting 84 yards on six carries, including an eight-yard touchdown run. He also had a 51-yard run that set up the team’s final touchdown.

With the game tied, 27-27, Coastal Carolina kicker Massimo Biscardi made a 40-yard field goal with four seconds left to give the Chanticleers the win.
