FINAL: ULL 43, ECU 34
ULL got off to a fast start and built up a 21-point lead in the second quarter but a fumble on special teams swung momentum in ECU's favor. The Pirates were able to come within a field goal twice but couldn't stop the Ragin' Cajuns in the fourth quarter.
Brett Baer drilled a 40-yard field goal with :10 seconds left to ice the game.
This is the second consecutive New Orleans Bowl victory for ULL and the first time the school has won bowl games in back-to-back seasons.
