HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Chris Wilson caught a 14-yard scoring pass from Brian Babin to give Southeastern Louisiana a 30-27 win over Sam Houston State in overtime on Saturday night.

Babin was 24-of-46 passing for 271 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Jay Lucas ran 19 times for 98 yards and a touchdown. Lucas also caught six passes for 78 yards and another score for the Lions (5-6, 2-4 Southland), who won their first conference road game since 2005.

Rhett Bomar passed for 506 yards for Sam Houston, becoming only the second Bearkat to pass for more than 500 yards in a game. The Sam Houston single game record of 577 yards passing was set by Dustin Long against McNeese in 2004.

Bomar, the former Oklahoma Sooner, also became Sam Houston's all-time passing leader. He finished the night with 5,227 career yards at Sam Houston, surpassing Arthur Louis, who threw for 4,902 yards from 1977 to 1980.

Taylor Wilkins gave Sam Houston (4-5, 2-4) a 27-24 lead with a 30-yard field goal on the first possession in overtime before the Lions got the ball at the 25-yard line.

Andre Cryer gained 10 yards to the 15 on an end-around before Lucas was stopped for a 1-yard gain.

Babin then lobbed a pass into the left corner of the end zone, where Wilson made a spectacular catch.
