The Colonels have defeated the Demons five consecutive times, with Northwestern’s last victory in the rivalry coming in 2015.
Nicholls received a boost from junior running back Julien Gums, who rushed for 156 yards (the third-highest in his career) and a touchdown. He also became the third Colonel to rush for over 2,000 yards in his career.
The Colonels 3-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Southland Conference.
