HAMMOND, La. (AP) -- Jay Lucas scored on a 1-yard run in overtime to give Southeastern Louisiana a 21-24 win over Northwestern State on Saturday.

In the fourth quarter, Greg Skidmore scored on a 22-yard pass from Roch Charpentier to give the Demons a 21-16 lead.

Jay Lucas's 1-yard TD run put SLU up 24-21 and Weeks' field goal tied the game and sent it into overtime.
