LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) -- Tyrell Fenroy ran for three touchdowns and a career-high 178 yards on 26 carries as Louisiana-Lafayette defeated Arkansas State 28-13 on Saturday.
On the season, Fenroy has 196 carries for 1,079 yards and became the first player in school history with two 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
The Ragin' Cajuns improved to 6-6 overall and 4-3 in the Sun Belt Conference. The loss kept Arkansas State (6-6, 4-3) from having its first winning season since 1995.
UL scored twice in the fourth quarter after ASU used a field goal to cut the Cajuns' lead to 14-13 at the 14:53 mark.
But Louisiana-Lafayette put together a seven-play, 80-yard touchdown drive covering the next 3:22. Jerry Babb completed two passes totaling 25 yards and Fenroy ran four times for 17 yards before Babb ended the drive with a 23-yard touchdown run.
Fenroy put UL ahead by two scores at the 6:45 mark with his third rushing touchdown.
Babb had 107 yards passing and 74 yards rushing. He completed 10-of-18 passes and he was intercepted once.
ASU scored on the game's first series on a 38-yard field goal by Josh Arauco.
In the second quarter, Fenroy scored on a 7-yard run to make it 7-3. Leonard's 15-yard pass to Levi Dejohnette with 10:43 before the half made it 10-7.
A fumble at the ASU 42-yard line led to Fenroy's second TD run, a 2-yard jaunt with 4:29 left in the second quarter to give UL a 14-10 lead at the halftime.
