LAFAYETTE, La. -- Darriet Perry scored three second-half touchdowns and Florida International added a defensive score late in the third quarter on the way to a 38-17 win over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

The Golden Panthers (5-5, 5-1) remained in first place in the Sun Belt Conference and can clinch their first conference title with a win in one of their remaining two games.

The Panthers picked off Ragin' Cajun quarterback Blaine Gautier three times, and Junior Mertile returned the second of those 26 yards for a touchdown with 4:05 left in the third quarter.

Perry finished with 77 rushing yards and Carroll was 16-of-19 passing for 162 yards.

Gautier, making his second start, rushed for 112 yards and was 13-of-29 passing for 186 yards for the Cajuns (2-9, 2-5), who have lost seven straight.
