LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - James Tabary threw for 376 yards, the second-highest mark in school history, and two touchdown passes to lead McNeese State to a 38-13 win over Nicholls on Saturday night.

Running back Ryan Ross caught nine passes for 110 yards to go along with two rushing scores for the Cowboys (3-2, 2-1 Southland Conference). Kylon Highshaw added an 80-yard TD reception for McNeese State, which has beaten the Colonels nine straight times overall and nine straight at home.

Andre Fuller intercepted Nicholls’ quarterback Chase Fourcade’s pass and returned it 27 yards for an early 7-0 Cowboys lead. A Ross rushing touchdown and a Tabary passing TD to Parker Orgeron made it 21-3 at halftime.

The Colonels (1-3, 1-1) never seriously threatened in the second half.

Fourcade threw for 341 yards and C.J. Bates had 94 yards receiving for the Colonels.
