MONROE, La. -- Rodney Lovett ran for a 3-yard touchdown with 5:09 to play, propelling Louisiana-Monroe to a 21-18 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday.

Trailing 12-7 at halftime, Frank Goodin, who finished with a career-high 169 rushing yards, put the Warhawks (6-4, 5-1 Sun Belt Conference) ahead 14-12 early in the fourth with a 48-yard TD run. But Brandon Smith scored on a 1-yard TD run, putting the Hilltoppers on top 18-14.

That set up Lovett's game-winning TD scamper.

Western Kentucky's Casey Tinius missed a 32-yard field goal with 1:22 left in the fourth quarter after kicking field goals of 43, 35, 39 and 41 yards in the first half.

Trey Revell had 151 yards and two interceptions and rushed for 40 yards and a score for the Warhawks.

Kawaun Jakes threw for 188 yards for the Hilltoppers (0-10, 0-6), whose 18-game losing streak is the longest in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
