Cowboys crush Cardinals in season finale

LAKE CHARLES (AP) — Kelvin Bennett rushed for 112 yards on four carries, including a 93-yard touchdown, as McNeese State shut out Lamar 35-0 Saturday night in the season finale for both teams.

The Cowboys (7-4, 4-3 Southland Conference), who had already clinched their eighth straight winning season — the eighth-longest streak of its kind among all Football Championship Subdivision teams — posted their highest win total since 2009 and their eighth consecutive non-losing record in the league.

Cody Stroud, who threw for 346 yards in last week's 31-24 loss to Texas-San Antonio, was 10-of-18 passing for 158 yards and two touchdowns — a 46-yarder to Dontae Spencer and a 2-yarder to Kendale Thomas in the "Battle of the Border."

DePauldrick Garrett rushed for 100 of his 112 yards in the first half for the Cardinals (4-8, 1-6).

Caleb Berry, who replaced injured starter Ryan Mossakowski last week, was 13-of-20 passing for 68 yards.
