Louisiana-Lafayette snaps UAB’s 21-game home winning streak

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Levi Lewis threw for two touchdowns, Chris Smith returned a kickoff 100 yards and Louisiana-Lafayette used two fourth-quarter interceptions to beat UAB 24-20 on Friday night, snapping the Blazers’ 21-game home winning streak.

ULL trailed the first three quarters before Pearse Migl caught his first pass of the season, going for a 9-yard touchdown, to give the Ragin’ Cajuns a 24-20 lead with 6:35 left. On UAB’s next possession, Cameron Solomon intercepted Bryson Lucero’s deep pass.

Rhys Byrns booted a 74-yard punt to put UAB at its 6 with 1:16 remaining, and Bralen Trahan sealed it three plays later with an interception.

Elijah Mitchell rushed for 67 yards for ULL (4-1). Jalen Williams caught two passes for 40 yards and a score, and Smith had his second kickoff return TD this season.

Spencer Brown carried it 28 times for 128 yards and two touchdowns for UAB (4-2). Lucero was 10-of-23 passing for 110 yards with two interceptions.

UAB had not lost at Legion Field since 2017, snapping the third longest active home winning streak in the nation behind Clemson and Notre Dame.
