Nicholls 31, Northwestern State 24

NATCHITOCHES, La. – The No. 7 Nicholls State University football team used a gritty performance by running back Julien Gums, who rushed a career-high 36 times for 156 yards and a touchdown, to pick up its fifth consecutive win in the series against Northwestern State, defeating the Demons, 31-24, Saturday night in Turpin Stadium.

With the win, Nicholls improved to 3-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Southland, marking just the third 2-0 start in Southland play. The victory sets up a top 25 matchup next weekend in Huntsville against Sam Houston.

Gums was the workhorse throughout, rushing for his third highest single game of his career. He also reached a career milestone by becoming only the ninth Colonel in team history to eclipse 2,000 yards rushing.
