Week Two Sun Belt Conference Football Players of the Week – As selected by the Sun Belt media panel
Offensive Player of the Week
Kolton Browning (Louisiana-Monroe, Jr., QB)
Kolton Browning tallied 481 yards of total offense (a new-career high) and his 16 yard run to the endzone in overtime gave the Warhawks their first-ever win over Arkansas and their first-win over a ranked opponent (as a FBS member). Browning set new career-highs
in passing yards (412), completions (42) and attempts (67). The junior also registered a total of 83 plays which ranks second in ULM history for a single-game. Browning rushed 16 times for 69 yards in the contest.
Defensive Player of the Week
Jemarlous Moten (Louisiana-Lafayette, Sr., DB)
Senior cornerback Jemarlous Moten led the Cajuns with a career-high 12 tackles in the win at Troy, but he turned in the biggest play of the contest in the first quarter when he gathered in a fumble and returned it 56 yards for a touchdown to give ULL the lead
for good in a 37-24 win. It was the third touchdown of his career (he had two INT returns for TDs in 2011).
Special Teams Player of the Week
Brett Baer (Louisiana-Lafayette, Sr., P/PK)
Senior kicker Brett Baer made field goals from 25, 25 and 32 yards to help lead UL to a 37-24 win at Troy, snapping a 21-game losing streak in road openers and ending TU's 25-game win streak in home openers. In the process, Baer broke the Sun Belt Conference
record for consecutive field goals made with 17. Baer, who leads the nation with 3.5 field goals per game this year, snapped the old league mark of 17 by ULM's Cole Wilson (2006-07). Baer also had an affect on the game as a punter, averaging 43.3 yards on
seven kicks, including a career-long 69-yard effort, with four punts downed inside the 20. His kicks were returned for just 15 yards. In addition, Baer kicked off eight times for a 61.6 average with a pair of touchbacks.
