Associated Press

MONROE, La. -- Wesley Carroll came off the bench to throw three touchdown passes to lead Florida International to a 28-17 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

Carroll, who passed for 213 yards, came in after starter Jake Medlock was injured on the second play of the game. Carroll had touchdowns of 13 yards to Colt Anderson, 27 yards to Glenn Coleman and 58 yards to T.Y. Hilton as the Golden Panthers (7-4, 4-3 Sun Belt Conference) built a 21-7 lead in the first half.

The seven regular-season wins are the most in program history for FIU.

Louisiana-Monroe (3-8, 2-5) had more first downs (25-17) and total yards (356-340) than FIU, but its offense had trouble reaching the end zone. Kolton Browning scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter to provide the final margin. The Warhawks' only other touchdown came on a 98-yard kickoff return by Luther Ambrose.
