The Nicholls State University football team lost to Southeastern Louisiana 52-45 at home on Saturday in the annual River Bell Classic.


The Colonels led by the half 24-17, but some second-half interceptions dug a hole the Colonels could not climb back out of.

Two Colonels had record days in the loss. Running back Julien Gums tied the program’s single-game record with four rushing touchdowns. Wide receiver Dai’Jean Dixon needed just two yards to surpass Mark Carrier for the program’s all-time receiving record and finished with five receptions for 92 yards.



With the win, the Lions evened the series at 15-15.

Nicholls is now 4-3 overall and 3-3 in SLC play for the season.
