Louisiana-Lafayette rushes past Georgia State in 2nd half
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Raymond Calais and Elijah Mitchell each rushed for 100-plus yards, with Calais scoring three times, and Louisiana-Lafayette used a big fourth quarter to beat Georgia State 36-22 on Saturday.
Calais broke a 47-year old program record in the first quarter with a 92-yard touchdown run. The long run opened the scoring and Andre Nunez connected with Ryheem Malone from 32-yards out on their next possession for a 13-0 lead.
LAFAYETTE — Levi Lewis will be the man under center this week for the Louisiana-Lafayette football team, and possibly for the next three seasons.
The true freshman out of Scotlandville High was the surprise starter in last week’s 19-14 victory at the University of South Alabama. Lewis completed eight of 15 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns, which included a 54-yard pass to Michael Jacquet, and ran the ball 18 times for 129 yards.
