UL-Monroe received a tough blow last week as they fell 52-33 to Memphis. UL-Monroe’s loss came about despite a quality game from QB Caleb Evans, who picked up 112 yards on the ground on 18 carries and accumulated 286 passing yards. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Evans has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.
Meanwhile, Texas State and Nicholls State couldn’t quite live up to the 55-point over/under that the experts had forecasted. The Bobcats put the hurt on Nicholls State with a sharp 24-3 victory. The score was all tied up at the break, but the Bobcats were the better team in the second half.
Texas State’s win lifted them to 2-3 while UL-Monroe’s defeat dropped them down to 2-3. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Bobcats are third worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 80.8 on average. But the Warhawks are stumbling into the game with the second most rushing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 256.2 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
