UL-Lafayette wins LendingTree Bowl
MOBILE, Ala. — Levi Lewis and Louisiana-Lafayette added one more win to the most successful season in school history.
Lewis threw two touchdown passes to Ja’Marcus Bradley, and the Ragin’ Cajuns beat Miami of Ohio 2717 in the LendingTree Bowl on Monday night.
Louisiana-Lafayette earned its first bowl win since 2014. It finished with a school-record 11 victories, two more than the previous mark.
“Tonight, our guys were at their best when it mattered most,” coach Billy Napier said. “We made a lot of progress as a team this season and in the last month leading up to this game.”
Lewis was 19 for 26 for 246 yards for the Ragin’ Cajuns (11-3), and Bradley finished with seven receptions for 88 yards. Lewis also had eight carries for a game-high 62 yards.
“I was just trying to be a team player and not worry about the stats,” said Lewis, who was named the game’s MVP. “This is a great team to be around.”
