NCAA Game Summary - ULM at Auburn



(Saturday, September 15th)

Final Score: Auburn 31, ULM 28 (OT)

Auburn, AL (Sports Network) - The ULM Warhawks nearly knocked off an SEC program for the second straight week, but Cody Parkey nailed a 35-yard field goal in overtime to secure a 31-28 win for the Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Onterio McCalebb gained 128 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Tigers (1-2), who narrowly avoided their first 0-3 start since 1950. Tre Mason was also effective on the ground with 90 yards and a score. Kiehl Frazier went 10- of-18 for 130 yards, throwing a touchdown and catching another.

Kolton Browning finished 28-of-46 for 237 yards and three passing touchdowns for the Warhawks (1-1), who defeated then-ranked Arkansas, 34-31, in their season opener last week. Jyruss Edwards had 76 yards rushing and Browning added another 58 yards and a score on the ground.

ULM struck first at the 8:22 mark of the first quarter when Browning hooked up with Harley Scioneaux on a one-yard touchdown strike.

Auburn tied things up on its next possession following a 27-yard touchdown scamper from Onterio McCalebb.

Following a 39-yard touchdown run by Browning, the Warhawks retook the lead, 14-7, with under four minutes to play in the second quarter.

The Tigers answered again less than two minutes later. On a trick play, receiver Quan Bray completed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Frazier.

After forcing a ULM three-and-out, Auburn got the ball on the Warhawks' 39- yard line. Three plays later, Frazier connected on a 33-yard touchdown pass to Sammie Coates to give the Tigers a 21-14 lead just before halftime.

The Tigers scored their third straight touchdown early in the third quarter on a Mason one-yard score to extend their lead, 28-14.

Auburn had a chance to put the game out of reach later in the third quarter when Mike Blakely ripped off 19-yard run inside ULM's five-yard line, but he fumbled to prevent the Tigers from scoring.

Another Auburn miscue, this time a Frazier interception midway through the fourth quarter, allowed ULM to bring the game to within one score, 28-21, after another Browning-to-Scioneaux hookup.

With less than two minutes left in regulation, Colby Harper reeled in a six- yard touchdown from Browning. Following a successful PAT, the score was tied a 28-28. Auburn failed to score on their final possession and the game went to overtime.

ULM got the ball first in overtime, but Justin Manton missed a 37-yard field goal attempt. Cody Parkey responded with the game-winner on the Tigers' possession to give them their first win of the season.

Manton also missed a field goal attempt during regulation, which proved to be costly.
