BEAUMONT, Texas -- Justin Pratt carried 27 times for 206 yards and two touchdowns to help McNeese State beat Lamar 27-3 on Saturday.
The Cowboys' last 200-yard rushing came 11 years ago when Toddrick Pendland rushed for 242 yards on Nov. 8, 2008, against Stephen F. Austin.
Cody Orgeron was 14-of-22 passing for 238 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for McNeese (7-5, 5-4 Southland Conference). He also carried it 15 times for 46 yards and a score. The Cowboys extended their winning-season streak to 15 straight years, which is the longest in the FCS after Jacksonville State lost.
Shane Johnson passed for 110 yards on just six completions for Lamar (4-8, 2-7). The Cardinals were held to 210 total yards.
Lamar was within 7-3 with 14:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, but the Cowboys answered with rushing touchdowns of 41 yards and two 1-yarders to pull away.
