Warhawk GameDay

The Warhawks will finally take to the field in the friendly confines of Malone Stadium. Despite this, ULM will once again don their road white uniforms as the home opener will be the first ever White Out game. ULM will square off against their third straight BCS school, having split the first two games with SEC opponents. This week though the Baylor Bears will enter the game with the nation's second longest winning streak and a perfect 2-0 record this season.

What to watch for:

  • Special teams, especially kick and punt returns are in need of drastic improvements for the Warhawks to setup possessions. Cortney Davis will need to show more discipline on returns, averaging under 10 yards per return.
  • The secondary will be tested, as the Bear's offense is quick to the line and quick to throw deep. Vincent Eddie, Isaiah Newsome, and Cordero Smith will all need to be ready to make plays.
  • ULM's lone senior on the offensive line, Jonathan Gill, will be making his 37th career start for the Warhawks, and 14th straight.
  • 30,101 is the current record crowd for a game in Malone Stadium. 2007 vs. Grambling


Odds makers put the Warhawks as 7.5 point underdogs. Odds makers are expected a full offensive assault though, as the over/under is set to 110.
