With the game on the line and a perfect 3-0 start in conference play hanging in the balance, ULM sophomore defensive end Troy Evans took the game into his own hands.
He sacked All-Sun Belt quarterback Corey Leonard on back-to-back plays to help the Warhawks preserve a 16-10 victory over Arkansas State in front of a nationally televised audience on ESPN2. ASU had the ball on the ULM 25-yard line with one minute to play in the game.
Using just a three-man rush, Evans beat the right tackle with a speed rush on second down and a power rush on third down to force a desperation Hail Mary on fourth down. Evans' two sacks doubled his career total of 1.5 that he entered the game with. The sacks helped ULM achieve its second ever 3-0 conference start and make the Warhawks 4-2 overall for the first time since 1993.
