|ULM runs over FIU; Warhawks remain perfect in Sun Belt|
Junior running back Frank Goodin ran for a career-high 163 yards and three touchdowns and junior quarterback Trey Revell threw for a career-best 273 yards with a career-high 19 completions and two touchdowns as ULM defeated FIU, 48-35, on Saturday afternoon at Malone Stadium.
After a slow start offensively that saw the Warhawks earn just one first down in their first four possessions, the ULM offense hit its stride, piling up 577 yards of total offense. Senior wide receiver Darrell McNeal finished the day with six catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns.
With the victory, ULM (3-2, 2-0 Sun Belt) earned its first 2-0 start in conference play since 2005. The Warhawks' 45 points is the most they have ever scored in a Sun Belt victory. ULM is also off to its best since after its first five games since the 1993 squad opened the season 4-1, which was ULM's last season in Division I-AA (Bowl Championship Subdivison).
"It was a great team win, we seem to make it hard on ourselves sometimes, but they have a darn good football team," said ULM head coach Charlie Weatherbie.
Each team opened the contest with a three-and-out before FIU (0-4, 0-1) created a turnover on ULM's second possession of the contest. Scott Bryant intercepted a tipped Revell pass and returned the interception nine yards to the Warhawk 21-yard line. On the first play following the interception, FIU took the lead as Paul McCall found Greg Ellingson in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown.
ULM tied the score with a 68-yard touchdown drive, capped by a 9-yard Revell touchdown run. Facing a 3rd-and-7 at the FIU 24, ULM kept the drive alive as Revell connected with sophomore wide receiver Luther Ambrose for eight yards and a first down. ULM picked up seven yards on a first down pass before Revell's 9-yard quarterback keeper up the middle got the Warhawks in the end zone.
ULM took its first lead of the contest on its next possession as the Warhawks marched 94 yards in 11 plays, capped by a 9-yard touchdown run by Goodin. Backed up on its own 6-yard line to begin the drive, ULM got out of the shadow of its own end zone with a 52-yard reception by senior wide receiver LaGregory Sapp on the second play of the drive. Seven plays later, the ULM drive stayed alive as the result of a FIU pass interference penalty on a 3rd-and-18. After the penalty gave the Warhawks a 1st-and-goal, Goodin found the end zone on third down to give ULM a 14-7 lead.
FIU wasted little time coming back to tie the game, 14-14, as the Panthers marched 66 yards on just six plays in 1:46. Darriet Perry finished off the drive for FIU with an 8-yard touchdown scamper.
A 26-yard pass from Revell to McNeal and a 20-yard pass from Revell to junior tight end Alvin Jordan had the Warhawks quickly knocking on the door once again, putting ULM at the FIU 8-yard line just three plays into the ensuing drive. Junior running back Rodney Lovett gained four yards on 1st-and-goal before Revell hooked up with McNeal again for a touchdown. McNeal made a diving catch in the back of the end zone to once again give the Warhawks the lead.
An interception by senior defensive back James Truxillo on FIU's next drive gave ULM the chance to increase its lead before the intermission. The Warhawks moved the ball 42 yards before sophomore kicker Radi Jabour connected on a 34-yard field goal with 12 seconds remaining in the half to give ULM a 24-14 advantage going into the break.
FIU got the ball to start the second half and moved 59 yards in eight plays for a touchdown to trim the ULM lead back to three, 24-21. The Panthers scored on a 27-yard pass from McCall to T.Y. Hilton.
The Warhawks answered right back as Ambrose returned the kickoff 54 yards to the FIU 41-yard line. On the second play from scrimmage, Goodin went 35 yards around the left end for a touchdown to push the ULM lead back to 10, 31-21, with 11:26 to play in the third quarter.
Jarvis Wilson returned a ULM fumble to the Warhawk 15-yard line to set up the Panthers with great field position. FIU cashed in on the third play from scrimmage following the fumble as McCall hooked up with Dudley LaPorte for a 14-yard score.
The Warhawks answered the FIU score once again as ULM registered an eight-play, 59-yard drive to push the ULM lead back to 10 points. Facing a 3rd-and-16, ULM picked up a first down via a personal foul penalty to FIU to keep the drive alive at the Golden Panther 31-yard line. Three plays after the penalty, Revell found McNeal for their second scoring hookup of the day from 18 yards out.
ULM increased its lead to 13 with a career-long-tying 48-yard field goal by Jabour. The field goal capped an 11-play, 45-yard drive that took 6:26 and gave the Warhawks a 41-28 advantage with 4:41 to play.
Goodin scored his third touchdown of the day with a 23-yard scoring run, giving ULM a 48-28 lead with 1:37 to play before Perry capped the scoring for FIU with a 2-yard touchdown run.
The Warhawks will return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 13, when they host Arkansas State in a nationally-televised Sun Belt contest. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m., and will be shown live on ESPN2 from Malone Stadium
