If you changed the channel and didn’t watch the last 15 seconds of the game, be sure to catch the replay. In what can be called one of the most amazing finishes in Cajuns football history (including the win over Texas A&M in the 90′s), Brett Baer’s first 50 yard field goal gave the Cajuns it’s first Bowl victory in the history of the university’s program.
Soon, we’ll have posted the call from Jay Walker to one of the most phenomenal comebacks since their final home game performance this season. From

Brett Baer’s 50-yard field goal as time expired lifted Louisiana to a 32-30 victory over San Diego State Saturday evening in the 2011 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in front of a record crowd of 42,841.

Trailing 30-29 with 35 seconds remaining, Blaine Gautier capped off a record-setting performance of 470 yards passing by directing Louisiana (9-4) into SDSU territory for Baer’s game clincher.

Starting at the UL 18, Gautier completed back-to-back passes to Javone Lawson that covered 39 yards and moved the Cajuns to the SDSU 43.

Gautier found Harry Peoples on the sideline for five yards to the SDSU 38 to move into the 50-yard field goal range, then a five-yard penalty against the Aztecs (8-5) moved Baer and the Cajuns a little closer to victory.

Baer successfully converted the 50-yard field goal as time expired – his first career 50-yard field goal make – to give UL its first nine-win season since 1976.
