The Jaguars took a 12-7 lead before Masson threw touchdown passes to Undrea Sails and Luke Aubrey.

Sails, also making his first start, rushed for 114 yards as part of the Cajuns' 533-yard attack. Sails' 2-yard touchdown with 1:27 left in the second quarter gave Louisiana-Lafayette a 28-12 halftime lead.
