ULM can’t seem to catch a break. Traveling to Oxford Mississippi to take on the second SEC opponent of the season, Ole Miss completely dominated the game from start to finish. The Rebels ran ULM out of Oxford. Ole Miss outgained and outscored the Hawks thoroughly. In the first quarter alone Ole Miss had three touchdowns. They never let off the gas as they went into halftime up 49-7, with no hope in sight for the visiting team.

Jordan Ta’amu was comfortable all game, taking his time on throws and rushing the ball effectively. Ta’amu was 21-24 for 374 yards and five TDs. He also accounted for two rushing TDs and 63 yards on the ground. On defense the Rebels did not let up as nothing went right for ULM. The big play highlighted this game. ULM’s inability to stop it and Ole Miss’ ability to continue stretching the fieild.

While ULM’s defense was nothing to write home about, the offense had a couple of good players, for what it’s worth. R.J. Turner continued his solid campaign with 112 yards on five receptions (22.4 yards per reception). Marcus Green had seven catches for 60 yards, and an impressive 71-yard punt return TD. Caleb Evans wasn’t horrible going 17-28 with 206 yards and 37 yards rushing.

ULM is now in a slump as this season has slowed down tremendously. After starting a strong 2-0, the Warhawks have dropped the last four games, with three games not being close. ULM needs to regroup in order to take advantage of the start they had. ULM is now 2-4 on the season with a return home hopefully reenergizing the team. They will face Costal Carolina on Oct. 13 with kick off at 5:00 p.m.
