Did you notice?

Quarterback turned wide receiver Antron Mason played defensive back tonight and put pressure on UNT quarterback Giovanni Vizza on several occasions forcing incomplete passes. True Freshman and late signee Darius Prelow saw a lot of action on the defensive side of the ball recording 5 total tackles (4 solo)

Big Play Luther

For the second week in a row, ULM true Freshman Luther Ambrose took one to the house. Last week it was a 91 yard kickoff return, this week it was a 69 yard touchdown reception. Ambrose took a simple swing pass, turned on the jets and blew by the entire UNT defense for the long score.

Getting Tricky

Fans have been waiting on it and tonight D-Mac delivered a perfectly thrown 46 yard double pass touchdown pass to J.J. McCoy. It was McCoy's first touchdown of the season.

Game Balls

Defensive back Josh Thompson was all over the field tonight recording 20 total tackles, a career high. Quarterback Kinsmon Lancaster was again brilliant not turning the ball over and putting up 266 total yards and three touchdowns.
