UL MONROE 31, MIDDLE TENN 17
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Jyruss Edwards rushed for two
touchdowns, Kolton Browning threw for 285 yards and one score
and Louisiana-Monroe controlled time of possession to defeat
Middle Tennessee 31-17 in the Warhawks' Sun Belt Conference
Louisiana-Monroe (3-2, 1-0) had the ball nearly 40 minutes while
rolling up 500 yards total offense compared to 307 for the Blue
Raiders (3-2, 1-1). Middle Tennessee, which trailed 24-3 early
in the third quarter, had just 69 yards on the ground.
After Benny Cunningham scored his second Blue Raiders TD in the
first minute of the fourth quarter, Middle Tennessee got the
ball back with 11:06 remaining.
On second-and-goal from the Louisiana Monroe 7, Logan Kilgore's
pass was intercepted by Isaiah Newsome with 8:25 to go. The
Warhawks then ran out the clock on a 16-play, 70-yard drive.
Kilgore passed for 238 yards, and Carlos Lopez kicked a
career-long 44-yard field goal for Middle Tennessee.
