You know, there were times last week I wasn't sure if we were preparing for Western Division…
Harris/Cajuns End Troy's Streak
Broadway replaced Gautier after the senior quarterback left the game after scoring on a 10-yard run with 3:37 left in the first quarter with the score tied at 7-7.
Broadway hit 10 of 16 passes for 143 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown pass to Harry Peoples to give UL a 27-17 lead in the third quarter.
UL senior corner back Jemarlous Moten returned a fumble 56 yards for a score in the first quarter, giving the Ragin' Cajuns a 14-7 lead. Louisiana led 20-14 at halftime, but stretched the lead to 37-17 in the fourth quarter on Harris' 2-yard touchdown run.
Louisiana kicker Brett Baer continued his streak booting three field goals, setting a Sun Belt record with 18 consecutive field goals made. The Ragin' Cajuns forced three Troy turnovers and didn't have any of their own.
The loss for Troy (1-1, 0-1) spoiled a record-breaking night for quarterback Corey Robinson. He hit 46 of 70 passes for a school-record 485 yards and two touchdowns. Robinson also broke Troy's career passing record and now has 7,786 yards. Receiver Chandler Worthy, who lost the fumble to Moten in the first quarter, had nine receptions for 154 yards.
The Ragin'Cajuns defense held Troy running back to 33 yards on 16 carries after he ran for 204 yards last week against UAB.
Coach Hudspeth talked about his denfense's play and winning the turnover battle.
"We talked about it before the game. I told our guys, I guaranteed them that if we won the turnover battle, we'd win the game. I told them I'd walk home if we didn't. I think it was three to zero (turnovers). Defensively, we've got to get a better rush on the quarterback. We bent but didn't break at times. Played well at times, at times gave up some big plays. They've got some big-play playmakers. That quarterback's (Robinson) very talented, so they're a very good offense."
Coach Hudspeth talked about Terrance Broadways performance coming off the bench for the injured Baline Gautier.
"Terrance prepares like he's the starter. This is two years in a row we've had to come in here and play Troy without our starting quarterback and that's hard. Terrance was prepared, I thought he made some great decisions and took care of the football."
With tonights win over Troy, Coach Hudspeth is now 2-0 against Coach Blakeney's Trojans.
"It's important to us. We're just trying to make our mark and we're a work in progress. We're not there yet. We're just tyring to take it one game at a time. And this place here in Troy, and Coach Blakeney's got so much tradition. They do such an unbelivable job and it's very hard to come in here and win in Troy"
