HAMMOND, LA (KPLC) - It was the kick heard around the world. With the game tied at ten, and one second left of the clock, MSU's sophomore place kicker Josh Lewis nailed a 52 yard field goal to give the Pokes the win, 13-10.
McNeese quarterback Cody Stroud had a pretty good day in second start, going 15 for 29 for 172 passing yards. The big offensive weapons had to be running back Andre Anderson and all-purpose back Dionte Spencer. Anderson 21 carries for 74 yards and one touchdown to go along with six catches for 37 yards while Spencer ran the ball six times for 15 yards but had 2 catches for 81 yards. One of those came at the beginning of the game when Cody Stroud attempted to hit Wes Briscoe, but then the ball was deflected and Spencer made the catch and ran up the sideline. When he was pushed out of bounds, he made it a 73 yard play which set up Andre Anderson's rushing touchdown to give MSU a 7-0 lead.
McNeese State will be hosting long time rival Nicholls State for their homecoming game next Saturday.
