THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Gus Johnson ran for 202 yards and three touchdowns and Zach Conque passed for 291 yards and three touchdowns as Stephen F. Austin defeated Nicholls 42-20 on Saturday night after a 50-minute lightning delay.
Johnson, who ran over 200 yards for the second game this year, scored on a 34-yard run to give SFA (4-2, 1-1 Southland Conference) a 14-7 lead to begin the second half. Nicholls (0-7, 0-3) answered when Tobias Lofton broke for a 66-yard scoring run with 9:30 remaining in the third. Conque, who rushed for 51 yards, scored from the 1 for a 21-13 lead with 6:14 left in the third. SFA quickly added another touchdown when Johnson scored from the 1.
The victory ended SFA's 12 road-game losing streak.
Johnson is now SFA's all-time career touchdown leader with 42. Jordan Wiggs kicked six extra points to become the school's all-time leading scorer with 304 points.
