NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) - Jared West ran for 75 yards and three touchdowns and Northwestern State held on to beat Lamar 35-28 on Saturday night in a Southland Conference opener.

Darrel Colbert Jr. scored on a 9-yard run to pull Lamar to 35-28 with 8:51 to play. Northwestern State (1-2, 1-0) ate up about five minutes of the clock on its next series, but offside and holding penalties stalled the drive.

Lamar (1-2, 0-1) drove to the Northwestern State 44, but Isaac Warren intercepted Colbert’s pass on a third-and-16 with about a minute left and Northwestern State ran out the clock.
