TROY, Ala. -- DuJuan Harris ran for a career-high 234 yards and threw a touchdown pass as Troy defeated Louisiana-Lafayette 48-3 on Saturday night.

Arkansas State plays North Texas, which is 1-10, next week. The Ragin' Cajuns host Middle Tennessee on Dec. 3.

Drew Edmiston's 29-yard field goal gave the Ragin' Cajuns its first score, but Sam Glusman hit a 42-yard field goal to give the Trojans a 17-3 halftime lead.
Glusman's 40-yard field goal gave Troy a 34-3 lead with 9:43 left in the fourth, and Harris scored on a 35-yard run after Terence Moore's interception.
