  Elijah Mitchell rushed for 164 yards, including the winning touchdown in overtime, and No. 19 Louisiana-Lafayette beat Georgia State 34-31 on Saturday. The Ragin' Cajuns (2-0, 1-0 Sun Belt Conference) were ranked for the first time since 1943 following last week's 20-point win at Iowa State. Louisiana-Lafayette was a 17-point favorite, but trailed 14-7 at intermission and Levi Lewis then threw an interception on the opening drive of the second half. The Panthers (0-1, 0-1) answered by taking a 21-7 lead on Marcus Carroll's 2-yard run, but the lead didn't last long.

Lewis, who completed 21 of 37 passes for 279 yards, rolled left to complete a 4-yard pass for a touchdown that cut the lead to 21-14 midway through the third quarter, and then Mitchell got going. The senior running back burst free down the left side for two long gains; a 59-yard touchdown run that tied it at 21 late in the third, and a 53-yard run early in the fourth that set up Trey Ragas' 2-yard touchdown run. Georgia State tied it at 28-all on Coates' 4-yard run with 7:37 remaining. In overtime, Mitchell ran 12 yards around the right side and was untouched as he crossed the goal line for the final score. He finished with 16 carries. - AP College/Louisiana-Lafayette Football
