On a historic night inside Malone Stadium, a record crowd of 31,175 fans witnessed a back-and-forth contest on Friday night, which Baylor (3-0) came out on top, 47-42, over ULM (1-2). An untimely fumble did the Warhawks in and the lost possession proved to be the difference in the fastbreak affair that featured only three combined punts, five lead changes and one tie.
A solid rushing attack led by junior Jyruss Edwards who collected his second-career 100-yard game as he finished with 120 yards and a touchdown to pace ULM. Monterrell Washington collected his first carries of the season to finish with 86 yards and two touchdowns. Kolton Browning finished 25-for-39 for 272 yards, two touchdowns and one interception and rushed for 49 yards and another score.
Behind a 351 yard, four-touchdown performance by Nick Florence Baylor extended its winning-streak to nine games, second longest in the country behind TCU's 10-game streak.
