Recap: ULM vs. Baylor

Monroe, LA (Sports Network) - Nick Florence bounced back from a pair of early interceptions to throw for 351 yards and four scores, lifting Baylor to a 47-42 victory over Lousiana-Monroe Friday night at Malone Stadium.

Florence was an efficient 26-of-39 passing to go with 55 yards on nine carries on the ground. Glasco Martin led the running attack with 58 yards on 18 rushes and a touchdown for the Bears (3-0), who have now won nine games in a row dating back to last season, which is the second longest winning-streak in the country behind TCU's 10 straight.

Tevin Reese was Florence's favorite target, as he hauled in eight passes for a 145 yards and a pair of scores. Terrance Williams added four catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns.

Kolton Browning passed for 272 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 25-of-39 passing for ULM (1-2), which gained national acclaim by downing then- No. 8 Arkansas before dropping an overtime decision to Auburn last week.

Browning added 49 yards and a touchdown on the ground, while Jyruss Edwards rushed 21 times for 120 yards and a score and Monterrell Washington added a pair of touchdowns and 86 yards on seven carries.

Trailing 34-28 to start the fourth, Browning led the Warhawks on a 15-play, 75-yard drive, converting on five different third downs, including Browning's 1-yard plunge on 3rd-and-goal to give the home team a 35-34 edge.

Florence answered by moving the Bears deep into ULM territory and on 1st-and- goal, he rolled left on a designed run before flipping the ball to wide receiver Levi Norwood, who took it nine yards for a touchdown.

The two-point conversion attempt was unsuccessful, leaving the Bears with a 40-35 advantage with just over seven minutes remaining.

Browning hit Colby Harper for 41 yards on the second play of their ensuing possession, but Browning fumbled a handoff attempt on the next play, giving the ball back to Baylor.

Martin then converted a 4th-and-1 to keep the drive alive and Florence found Williams four plays later for a 22-yard TD pass to make it a two-score game.

Browning added a 15-yard scoring pass to Brent Leonard in the waning seconds to account for the final margin.

ULM jumped out to a 14-0 lead on a pair of first-quarter touchdowns, as Browning hit Tavarese Maye for a 22-yard touchdown before Washington capped a 7-play, 76-yard drive with a 9-yard scamper.

Baylor broke through less than a minute into the second stanza, as Florence found Reese for a 43-yard touchdown strike, but the Warhawks responded less than three minutes later, when Washington broke through the line and went 48 yards untouched to give ULM a 21-7 edge.

Martin's 1-yard plunge later in the second brought the visitors within 21-14 and Florence found Williams down the right sideline midway through the second stanza for a 48-yard touchdown pass to knot the game at 21-21.

Aaron Jones buried a 34-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to send the Bears into the locker room with a 24-21 lead.

ULM opened the second half with a quick score, as Edwards scampered 58 yards for a score on the fifth play of the half for a 28-24 edge, but Baylor responded two drives later when Florence hit Reese for a 46-yard scoring strike to put the Bears up 31-28.

A 21-yard field goal from Aaron Jones late in the third gave Baylor a 34-28 lead.
