THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Jeremiah Briscoe threw for 419 yards and three touchdowns and Davion Davis grabbed seven passes for 121 yards to lead Sam Houston State to a 38-21 win over Nicholls on Saturday.

Sam Houston State (7-0, 6-0 Southland Conference), which continued to roll through the conference schedule, jumped out to a 24-0 lead at the break and was up 38-14 at the start of the fourth quarter.

Chase Fourcade led Nicholls (3-4, 3-2), throwing for 254 yards.
