Moten and Baer Named Sun Belt PLOW
Defensive Player of the Week
Jemarious Moten (UL,DB)
Jemarious Moten (Sr. Miss Delta JC)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 (UL,P/K)
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.
Note: Brett Baer was also named Week One Special Teams Player of the Week in the Sun Belt.
