NEW ORLEANS San Diego State cut into UL's margin late in the third quarter, but the Ragin' Cajuns still hold a 19-17 lead over the Aztecs entering the final quarter of the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.

SDSU made it a one-score game with 3:40 left in the period when quarterback Ryan Lindley hit Colin Lockett with a 16-yard scoring pass, the second time the two had hooked up for a score in the quarter.

Official attendance for the bowl was announced after the third quarter. The 42,841 was a New Orleans Bowl record, topping the previous mark by over 12,000.
