|Texas Southern visits ULM|
The University of Louisiana-Monroe will host Texas Southern (0-1) this Saturday night with a 6 p.m. contest that will serve as the Warhawks home opener for the 2009 season.
ULM (0-1) saw some good, bad, and ugly in a 59-20 loss at No.2 Texas last weekend and will be looking to improve upon that as they host a Southwestern Athletic Conference opponent in Monroe for the third consecutive season.
Against the Texas Longhorns, junior quarterback Trey Revell made his third start of his career and completed 14-of-30 pass attempts for 197 yards and one touchdown while throwing one interception and giving away a fumble.
"There is no doubt in my mind Texas number one team in the country," ULM head coach Charlie Weatherbie said. "Defensively they got after us pretty good. I think that we hurt ourselves a lot of times by not blocking the right way. I was proud of the way our guys fought. I don't think we played very smart at times, but I thought that we played hard."
West Monroe product Frank Goodin got going in the final quarter and ran for 60 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries.
Sophomore speedster Luther Ambrose got a 75-yard touchdown pass from Revell and also added 25 yards rushing for the Warhawks.
Texas signal-caller Colt McCoy, a Heisman Trophy favorite, completed 21-of-29 pass attempts for 317 yards and two touchdowns. The ULM defense, switching to a 3-3-5 scheme this year, showed flashes of greatness but did surrender 59 points. The Warhawk defense forced three turnovers and also held top Texas running back Vondrell McGee to just 60 yards on the night.
Texas Southern will come into Malone Stadium with a bit of local flavor this Saturday. Former West Monroe High School linebacker and LSU signee Shomari Clemons is now on the Tigers' squad and led the team with 12 tackles in a 17-7 loss to Prairie View A&M last week.
TSU will be a large, physical presence in the trenches, but have yet to show the intensity and technique advantages that Texas had over ULM in the opening week of the regular season.
"They are very talented bunch of guys," ULM head coach Charlie Weatherbie said. "They run to the football real well. We expect them to be a very improved football team in the second game."
Arvell Nelson will be the starting quarterback for TSU after completing 12-of-27 pass attempts for 110 yards and no interceptions. Texas Southern did fumble the ball away twice and ULM coaches feel as if they have to win the turnover battle to be able to come away with the victory this week.
Joseph Warren rushed for 28 yards on eight carries to pace the Texas Southern offense a week ago.
The lone touchdown in the game for the Tigers was a 55 interception return for a score in the first quarter by Demarkus Washington before TSU surrendered 17 unanswered points to their conference rivals.
