Newton's Law Enforced 52-3

It was a painful day for ULM as they suffered a 52-3 defeat at the hands of the Auburn Tigers today in Jordan-Hare Stadium. 4 turnovers and 7 penalties didn't help the Warhawks cause, as all four turnovers led to a Auburn touchdown.

Rough Start

It didn't take Auburn long to get on the board in this one. 2 plays exactly as Onterio McCalebb took the hand off and went untouched 50 yards for the score. Some bad angles by the ULM defense allowed McCalebb to hit the sideline and tip toe for the score.

ULM started their first drive in great field position on their own 47 yard line but was only able to pick up one first down. A beautiful punt by Aaron Munoz pinned the Tigers inside the five yard line on the three.

After a short three yard run by Kody Burns the Tigers would electrify the crowd with the longest touchdown pass in Auburn history. Cam Newton hit a wide open Emory Blake for the 94 yard score giving the Tigers a 14-0 lead. The previous record was held by Terrell Zachery and Chris Todd. The two hooked up for a 93 yard touchdown pass last season.

Nice Drive

ULM would slow down the Tigers by playing keep away on their next possession. A very impressive 21 play drive took over 8 minutes off the clock and ended with a Radi Jabour 35 yard field goal, his first of the season.

On the drive quarterback Kolton Browning had the hot hand going 7/9 for 54 yards. In addition, six different Warhawk receivers caught passes on the drive.

Strong Drive, Bad Finish

After a Wes Byrum 19 yard field goal gave Auburn a 17-3 lead it looked as if ULM was settling down as they put together another very impressive drive.

Browning again was in control as he picked apart the nations #10 defense for 58 yards on 6/7 passing as ULM moved the ball down the Auburn 23 yard line.

Facing a 4th and 5 the Warhawks elected to bring on the field goal unit but had no intentions of kicking as the fake field goal call was on. Backup quarterback Cody Wells looked for a receiver but was under heavy pressure and intercepted by Zac Etheridge at the 15 and returned to the 34.

Not Seeing Red

Ten true freshman Warhawks saw action today against the Tigers. While there is a percentage of plays that have to be played and a confirmed injury needed to save a red-shirt, some of the guys will be counted on this season to contribute.

Je'Ron Hamm, Emmanuel Jefferies, Kentarius Caldwell, Ray Stovall, Roland Veal, Vincent Eddie, Centarious Donald, Josh Allen, Jon Fisher, and Luke Russell all saw action today.

Peterson catches first

Redshirt freshman Otis Peterson came to ULM after a fabulous career as a WR but it would be a interception that he would record before catching a pass. Peterson moved to corner back this season to help with depth issues at the position.

No Where To Run

ULM tried but had little success running the football today. The Warhawks tallied 38 yards on 33 carries. True freshman Centarious Donald led all rushers with 27 on nine carries. Senior Frank Goodin was held to six yards on just five carries.

Big Days

Both Kolton Browning and Cam Newton were the offensive stars for their respective teams. Browning finished 25/33 for 203 yards and one fumble lost. Newton, who played briefly into the 3rd quarter, finished 14/19 for 245 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.

Big Payday

The Warhawks will cash a fat check in the amount of One Million Dollars.
