Bowl season has a knack for giving us exciting football games when we least expect them.
Louisiana-Lafayette came into the game and appeared to be too much for ECU to handle. The Ragin' Cajuns got off to a fast start and a 14-0 lead in the second quarter. ULL extended their lead to 28-7 and it appeared the rout was on.
Then ECU was able to put together a 10-play 80-yard drive to cut the lead to 14. ULL fumbled on the ensuing kickoff and the Pirates scored on the very next play to pull within seven.
The score went back and forth the rest of the game, but ULL was able to hold on for their second consecutive New Orleans Bowl victory.
Let's take a look and grade how both teams performed today.
