TROY, Ala. (AP) - Jerrel Jernigan scored two touchdowns as Troy
knocked off Louisiana-Lafayette 31-24 on Saturday night.

Robinson with 4:43 remaining to give Troy the lead for good.
Earlier, Jernigan's 75-yard punt return for a score put the Trojans

Louisiana-Lafayette (2-4, 2-2) got two 1-yard touchdown runs
from backup quarterback Brad McGuire in the first half. Troy led
17-14 at halftime.

Chris Masson hit Marlin Miller with a 5-yard touchdown pass
early in the fourth quarter for the Ragin' Cajuns, but Troy took a
24-21 lead on Jonathan Chandler's 34-yard touchdown pass to Jason
Bruce on a trick play.

Troy's Robinson threw three interceptions, but was 23-for-33 for
237 yards.
