La.-Lafayette tops ECU in New Orleans Bowl, 43-34
UL LAFAYETTE 43, EAST CAROLINA 34

By BRETT MARTEL

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Whether Terrance Broadway was throwing,
running, or throwing on the run, he gave East Carolina fits and
justified Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth's decision to
let his sophomore quarterback finish the season as his starter.



Broadway passed for 316 yards and ran for 108, helping
Louisiana-Lafayette repeat as winners of the New Orleans Bowl
with a 43-34 victory against East Carolina on Saturday.



The performance capped a 2012 campaign which opened with
Broadway backing up senior Blaine Gautier, who broke a bone in
his throwing hand in late September.



"Terrance comes in and just has a phenomenal season," Hudspeth
said, describing the difficult decision not to give Gautier, the
New Orleans Bowl MVP a year ago, his job back when he was
healthy again late in the season. "We really had hit our stride
and the best thing about Blaine is he understood."



Broadway had to sit out last season after transferring from
Houston, and saw this year's New Orleans Bowl as his first real
chance to add some kind of championship to his name after coming
up short as a high school standout in Baton Rouge, La.



"My main goal was to get our team a big win in this bowl game
and just to get that monkey off my back that I didn't have a
ring from high school and last year," Broadway said. "I was very
focused on that."



Alonzo Harris rushed for 120 yards, including touchdowns of 6
and 68 yards for the Ragin' Cajuns (9-4), who briefly squandered
a three-touchdown lead before moving back in front for good on
Broadway's 14-yard scoring pass to Javone Lawson late in the
third quarter.



"Nothing fazes our team," said Broadway, who also ran for a
12-yard score. "Everybody on our team responds to adversity
well. So when they came back on us and made a game out of it,
our team is still upbeat and saying we're going to win this
game."



And they did, with Brett Baer adding his second and third field
goals in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.



Shane Carden passed for 278 yards and two touchdowns for East
Carolina (8-5) but was intercepted in Cajuns territory by
Jemarlous Moten in the fourth quarter as ECU drove for a
potential tying or go-ahead score.



"They did a good job of changing, I guess, the coverage
throughout the game," Carden said of ULL. "But I think our
offense could execute a lot better. It was nothing really they
were doing. It was a lot of us just not executing routine
plays."



The Pirates' Reggie Bullock rushed for 104 yards and two
touchdowns.



"The game plan was fine. We just needed the execution of the
calls. We've always played hard. That was not a problem," East
Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill said. "We had a chance there late
in the game. ... I was proud of our guys."



Carden's touchdowns went to Justin Hardy for 19 yards and Danny
Webster for 16 yards. Hardy finished with five catches for 59
yards. East Carolina's Andrew Bodenheimer had five catches for a
team-high 65 yards, but could not secure a crucial fourth-down
pass in the final minutes as defensive back T.J. Worthy ripped
the ball away in ECU territory. That allowed the Cajuns to run
the clock down to 15 seconds before setting up Baer's final
field goal from 40-yards out.



Jamal Robinson had six catches for 116 yards for ULL, including
a 39-yarder that was Broadway's longest completion. Lawson
finished with four catches for 71 yards.



The Cajuns carried a 37-31 lead into the fourth quarter after
Lawson juggled but secured the ball for a sprawling, rolling TD
catch. The point-after kick failed, however, and East Carolina
made it 37-34 on Warren Harvey's 26-yard field goal.



Broadway's interception on a tipped pass gave East Carolina the
ball on the Cajuns 39, but Moten stepped in front of Carden's
long pass over the middle to help preserve the slim lead.



Red-clad Ragin' Cajuns fans made up the bulk of a record New
Orleans Bowl crowd of 48,828, and they were celebrating early.



Broadway's scoring run, his ninth rushing TD of the season, gave
ULL a 7-0 lead and Harry Peoples' 10-yard scoring made it 14-0.



ECU didn't get a first down until early in the second quarter,
when Carden converted on third-and-long with Jabril Solomon for
a 45-yard gain. That set up Bullock's first touchdown from 5
yards out to make it 14-7.



Harris' two scores had the Cajuns seemingly in command at 28-7,
but ECU responded with two touchdowns in a span of 13 seconds to
make it a one-score game.



First came Hardy's leaping, outstretched grab in the back of the
end zone. Then Darryl Surgent fumbled a kickoff return, giving
ECU the ball on the Cajuns 16. Carden found Webster over the
middle for a score on the next play.



Louisiana-Lafayette was able to regain some momentum in the
final 37 seconds of the first half, driving 47 yards on five
plays to set up Baer's 50-yard field goal, which was the same
distance and direction as his game-winner at the end of last
year's New Orleans Bowl.



The Pirates tied it in the third quarter on Harvey's 45-yard
field goal and Bullock's 13-yard scoring run, capping a drive
that included a converted fourth-and-3.
