TROY, Ala. -- DuJuan Harris ran for a career-high 234 yards and threw a touchdown pass as Troy defeated Louisiana-Lafayette 48-3 on Saturday night.
The yardage mark is the second most in Troy (7-4, 5-1 Sun Belt Conference) history. Eddie Brundidge ran for 244 yards against Valdosta State in 1984.
The Trojans can win the conference outright with a Dec. 6 victory over Arkansas State. The Trojans and Red Wolves are tied with the Ragin' Cajuns (5-6, 4-2) with two losses in Sun Belt play. Arkansas State plays North Texas, which is 1-10, next week. The Ragin' Cajuns host Middle Tennessee on Dec. 3.
Harris got the scoring started with a 9-yard touchdown run, and Troy went up 14-0 in the second quarter when Cameron Sheffield blocked a 43-yard field goal attempt and Jorrick Calvin returned it 65 yards.
Drew Edmiston's 29-yard field goal gave the Ragin' Cajuns its first score, but Sam Glusman hit a 42-yard field goal to give the Trojans a 17-3 halftime lead.
Glusman's 40-yard field goal gave Troy a 34-3 lead with 9:43 left in the fourth, and Harris scored on a 35-yard run after Terence Moore's interception.
