Artigue's field goal lifts Louisiana-Lafayette to 23-21 win over Georgia State


ATLANTA — Stevie Artigue kicked a 21-yard field goal in the fourth quarter after a failed Georgia State fake punt and Louisiana-Lafayette took a 23-21 victory on Saturday.

Punter Wil Lutz, who missed two field-goal attempts, tried to pass on fourth-and-5 from the Georgia State 24, but the ball was caught by defensive end Tevin Jones for a loss. The Ragin' Cajuns (4-4, 3-1 Sun Belt) declined the illegal touching penalty and reached the Panthers 5 before Artigue's field goal with 6:59 remaining.

Savion Brown's interception ended a final drive for Georgia State (2-6, 1-3) with 1:58 left.

Artigue kicked a career-long 49-yarder with 1:30 left in the third to get the Ragin' Cajuns within 21-20.

Georgia State's Nick Arbuckle threw three touchdown passes, the final one a 3-yarder to Donovan Harden for a 21-17 lead in the third. He also had two touchdown throws to Keith Rucker.

Al Riles had 103 yards receiving with a TD for Louisiana-Lafayette.
