SE Louisiana rolls past Incarnate Word, 35-3

HAMMOND, La. (AP) - Bryan Bennett ran for a touchdown and passed for two more to lead Southeast Louisiana to a non-conference win over Incarnate Word, 35-3 Saturday.

Bennett took the Lions 66 yards for a touchdown on the opening possession of the game, finding Marquis Hayes with a 41-yard touchdown pass two minutes into the game, then found Jeff Smiley with a 17-yard strike to cap the scoring midway through the fourth quarter.

Marice Sutton picked off a Trent Brittain pass and returned it for a touchdown to put the Lions ahead, 21-3 at halftime.

Bennett was 19 of 30 for 267 yards for SE Louisiana (3-2) while the Lions amassed 463 total yards.

Brittain was 19 of 33 for 222 yards to lead independent Incarnate Word (3-3). The Cardinals were held to just 284 total yards of offense. They got their lone score on a 42-yard field goal by Jake Wilcox.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
