Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The Florida Atlantic Owls' season came to a close with a 35-21 loss against the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns on Saturday.

FAU scored twice in the first quarter to take a 14-7 lead, but the Ragin' Cajuns would go on to rattle off 21 unanswered points over the second and third quarter to take and keep the lead.

Florida Atlantic quarterback Graham Wilbert threw for 379 yards and two touchdowns but also threw two interceptions. The Owls had three turnovers total and the Ragin' Cajuns made them pay each time, scoring 21 points off of turnovers.

Wilbert finished the year with 2,435 total passing yards, with 16 touchdowns and just four interceptions.

Sophomore receiver William Dukes was Wilbert's favorite target, catching nine passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns.

Florida Atlantic improved under the watch of coach Carl Pelini's first year. Granted, there was quite a bit of room to improve following a 1-11 year in 2011.
