HAMMOND, La. (WAFB) - The River Bell Classic between Southeastern Louisiana and Nicholls State lived up to the hype Thursday night.

Southeastern (7-4, 6-3 Southland) fell 28-27 to Nicholls (8-4, 7-2 Southland) in a game that went down to the wire.

The Colonels clinched at least a share of the Southland Conference title with the win.

Southeastern must wait for Selection Sunday to find out if it made the FCS playoffs.
