NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The fourth New Orleans Bowl in a row goes to the ULL Ragin' Cajuns.
The Ragin' Cajuns defeated the Nevada Wolf Pack by a score of 16 to 3. ULL has the defense to thank, holding a Nevada team that averaged 31 points per game to only a field goal.
The Wolf Pack was held to one first down in the first quarter compared to the Cajun's 10.
Much of ULL's offensive spark came by way of Baton Rouge senior QB Terrance Broadway.
"I'm going to be honest with you," said Broadway, "I had a really big chip on my shoulder. All I heard about was their quarterback, so I wanted to come out and play well and be consistent all game long."
Nevada DE Brock Hekking agrees, "He's an athletic guy. He made excellent reads and flat out beat us."
The early start time was a concern for some, but it probably didn't hurt that once upon a time, Broadway used to play with Corey Trim and other football players in a pee-wee league that kicked off at 10 o'clock in the morning.
Broadway broke a bowl game record, completing a record 14 straight passes to begin the game, including a 17-yard TD pass to CJ Bates.
