A 22-yard scoring strike from Carson Earp to DeWan Thompson with six seconds on the clock handed the Lamar University football its most thrilling victory since bringing back the program at the start of the 2010 season. Trailing by as many as 13 points with less than two minutes remaining, LU (3-3, 3-1 Southland Conference) scored two touchdowns in the final 1:43 of the contest to record the victory over Northwestern State, 32-31, on Oct. 15 at Provost Umphrey Stadium.
