Stephen F Austin sweeps past Nicholls St. 55-41
NACOGDOCHES, Texas. (AP) — Brady Attaway threw six touchdown passes for Stephen F Austin in a 55-41 victory over Nicholls State Saturday.
After being tied at 14 entering the second quarter, Attaway threw four touchdown passes to give Stephen F Austin a 42-21 lead at the half. He threw one more touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, ending the game 35 of 50 for 337 yards. Joshawa West had a game-high 175 yards rushing for the Lumberjacks (3-4, 1-1 Southland).
Quarterback Tuskani Figaro responded to Attaway's second quarter rally with two rushing touchdowns in the third, cutting the deficit to 42-35 for Nicholls State (4-3, 1-1). The Colonels ended the game with four rushing touchdowns, despite the loss of Senior running back Marcus Washington after a knee injury in last week's game against Northwestern State. Washington, who ranks fifth in the Southland in rushing, is out for the season.
