ULM (7-4, 5-2) will head to south Florida this weekend for a Saturday evening contest at FIU (3-8, 2-5). The final contest of the regular season for both teams is set for a 5 p.m. (CT) kickoff at FIU Stadium.
Saturday afternoon's match-up between ULM and FIU will be the final meeting between the two schools as conference members. FIU will depart the Sun Belt for C-USA beginning with the 2013-14 academic year.
ULM leads the all-time series, 5-3; however, the Golden Panthers have won the last two meetings.
For the first time since joining the FBS ranks in 1994, the Warhawks have won seven games in a season. ULM's 42-16 win over North Texas (Nov. 17) pushed the team's record to 7-4. It also secured the Warhawks first winning season since going 9-3 in 1993 (the final season of FCS [1-AA] play].
