Edelman's 42-yard touchdown pass to Shawn Bayes once again gave the Golden Flashes a short-lived lead, as Desormeaux's 5-yard rushing score and Fenroy's 69-yard touchdown scamper put Louisiana on top 23-14 at halftime.
A 6-yard Edelman touchdown run made it 23-21 at 11:07 in the third, but Desormeaux's 55-yard scoring pass to freshman Ladarius Green and Fenroy's 1-yard scoring rush highlighted a span of three-straight Ragin'Cajun touchdowns that sealed the game early in the fourth quarter.
