Following a ULM (1-2) punt to begin the contest, Southeastern Louisiana (1-3) struck first with a seven-play, 71-yard touchdown drive. Tyler Beatty found Simmie Yarborough on a crossing pattern from five yards out for the score with 11:03 to play in the first quarter.
The Warhawks and Lions exchanged a pair of punts before ULM knotted the score with a 19-play, 89-yard touchdown march, capped by a 10-yard run by Browning. The Warhawks converted on 4-of-5 third downs on the drive and also picked up a first down on a fourth-and-six with an eight-yard pass from Browning to sophomore Brent Leonard on the 14th play of the drive.
The ULM scoring drive began with 8:40 remaining in the first quarter and ended on the first play of the second quarter.
The Warhawks took a 14-7 lead with 6:45 remaining in the second quarter as junior wide receiver Anthony McCall jumped on a fumble in the end zone. The score capped a six-play, 60-yard drive for ULM that took just over two minutes. On the scoring play, junior wide receiver Luther Ambrose caught a pass from Browning and gained 39 yards before fumbling the ball forward at the 16-yard line, the fumble was recovered in the end zone by McCall for a ULM touchdown.
McCall caught a career-high eight passes for 69 yards.
ULM took the seven-point lead into the intermission.
Southeastern Louisiana took advantage of a ULM turnover to tie the contest, 14-14, with 11:18 to play in the third quarter. The Lions took over on the Warhawk 14-yard line and scored on the first play of the drive as Beatty found Yarborough for their second touchdown connection of the contest.
Beatty was 20-of-41 in the contest for 212 yards and two touchdowns. Yarborough caught seven passes for 95 yards.

After the Warhawks defense forced a punt and gave the offense possession on the Lions' 47-yard line, ULM struck right away with a 47-yard touchdown pass from Browning to redshirt freshman Tavarse Maye on the first play of the drive. Maye out-jumped a Southeastern Louisiana defender in the end zone to tie the score, junior Radi Jabour's extra point gave ULM a 21-20 lead with 14:34 to play in the contest.
The Warhawks punted the ball to Southeastern Louisiana with 2:20 remaining, giving the Lions possession on their own nine-yard line.

ULM POSTGAME QUOTES
Head coach Todd Berry
On the game … "I've never been around a bad win, but that is probably the ugliest win I've certainly ever been around. We didn't start the first quarter off very well. We have a bunch of young guys out there and to Southeastern's credit they came out and did some different things. With a young football team, you get some of those blank stares sometimes. The penalties are really frustrating; the turnovers are really frustrating. I'm not used to that and I'm going to get to the bottom of that because we have to be a more intelligent football team. I challenged the team about it after the game because these are things we cover over and over again. I'm trying to smile about the victory, but it still sets me off about that kind of stuff. That's not the way we play and that's not the way I'm used to seeing a football team play."
Sophomore linebacker Cameron Blake
On the game … "I was excited about how we ran around and made plays and came out with a win. They have a good team. You can't take anything away from them. They came out and made plays, their receivers ran good routes. The second half we made adjustments and got it right."
On responding after last week's loss … "We came out with a chip on our shoulder after last week. Coach challenged us to make plays and we executed them."
Junior wide receiver Anthony McCall
On making plays … "It's always good to go out there and make plays for the offense. As receivers we are called on to be the playmakers and we go out there and make plays. That's the most important thing, to go out there and get the offense going."
On the penalties … "We had a lot of penalties tonight and you can't do that. We hurt ourselves doing that and it killed our drives. We need to pay attention to the details and do the little things."
Junior defensive end Ken Dorsey
On the defensive game plan … "The coaches put us in the right place at the right time. It was a great call by the coaches to have us come off the edge. The guy tried to cut us and I was able to just jump up and knock the ball out."
On the message from the coaching staff … "Coaches told us that it was time to come and play, I felt like we started out flat and I felt like we weren't ready in the beginning. As the game went along, we were able to come along and play hard."
SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA POSTGAME QUOTES
Head coach Mike Lucas
On the Game overall … "We missed a chip shot field goal, missed an extra point, recovered a fumble down in the green zone and didn't get anything out of it. You know, we had several opportunities to win this football game. It was a well coached game on both sides. We came out and had a very good plan on both sides of the ball. They made adjustments, we came back and made adjustments, then they made more adjustments. That's the way it goes. I thought it was a well coached game on both sides."
On ULM's eventual game-winning touchdown … "We're in man-to-man coverage and we have three guys in the quarterback's space and he (Kolton Browning) stepped back and made a nice throw. We had a chance to sack him and missed the sack, and we have got to have better coverage."
Senior linebacker Mark Newbill
On the game overall … "It's the same thing. It's stuff that can be corrected; we're just making a bunch of mistakes."
On ULM's fourth down conversions … "They wanted it more than we did. On that fourth down we made a whole bunch of mistakes and stuff that we can correct."
On opportunities lost … "We just have to work on giving up the big play and stop making so many mistakes. That's what's hurting us. Every week we're giving up big plays on deep balls and an endless list of things we can correct."
