THIBODAUX, La. -- Lorran Fonseca kicked a 32-yard field goal as time expired to give Nicholls a 37-35 victory over McNeese in the Southland Conference opener on Thursday night.
Trailing 35-34 with 2:57 remaining in the game, Chase Fourcade, who threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns, led the Colonels on a 53-yard drive to set up Fonseca's winning kick.
Fourcade ran up the middle for 19 yards and a score with 5:43 remaining to give Nicholls a 34-29 lead. The Cowboys answered when Nick Edwards skirted around right end from the 10 to score and take a 35-34 advantage. The two-point conversion attempt failed, allowing the Colonels to snap their eight-game losing streak to McNeese with Fonseca's kick.
