Marty Humphrey (ULM, Jr., WR)
Marty Humphrey caught three passes for 70 yards including the game-winner as ULM stunned the nation defeating Alabama 21-14 Saturday afternoon in Tuscaloosa. His game-winning score came on a critical third-and-10 play from the Crimson Tide 11-yard line.
Humphrey’s first catch of the day set up the Warhawks second touchdown. With ULM facing a third-and-10 on their own 20 yard line, Humphrey kept the drive alive with a leaping catch that went for 40 yards. His other catch came on the drive that he would eventually haul in the game winner.
With the Warhawks facing another tough situation, on a second-and-11, Humphrey pulled down a 19-yard completion down to the Alabama 32-yard line.
Quintez Secka (ULM, Sr., CB)
Quintez Secka intercepted Alabama’s John Parker Wilson two times and recorded five solo tackles as ULM stunned the nation with a 21-14 victory over the Crimson Tide.
Secka’s interceptions came on back-to-back possessions in the first quarter d. He earned a helmet sticker by the ESPN College Gameday Final crew for his efforts. He took his second interception back 42 yards to the Alabama one-yard line.
On ULM’s first play of its ensuing possession, Calvin Dawson scored the Warhawks first touchdown of the day. Secka now leads the Warhawks with five interceptions on the season, with all five of them coming in the last six games.
Scott Love (ULM, So., P)
ULM punter Scott Love was a key part to the Warhawks thrilling upset of Alabama on Saturday. Love punted eight times for 39.2 yards on the game. While the yardage is not above 40 per kick, it was what he did with the kicks that mattered.
Love put five of his eight kicks inside the 20-yard line, which gives him 22 on the season tying the school record. Alabama was forced to start drives on their own 13, 15, 10, 14 and 18 yard line due to punts by Love; Alabama didn’t score on any drive that started following a Love punt.
His two biggest kicks of the game came in the final three minutes of the game. He was forced to kick nine-yards deep in his own end zone and from inside the ULM 10-yard line. Both kicks against a full out punt block by Alabama, went for an average of 43.5 yards and flipped the field with ULM leading 21-14 and Alabama driving to tie the game.
