Baylor quarterback Nick Florence rebounded after a poor first quarter where he threw two interceptions that led to both Louisiana-Monroe touchdowns. Since then Florence has completed 8-of-12 for 160 yards and two touchdowns in the second quarter. For the game Florence is 13-for-20 for 188 yards.
The first touchdown for Baylor came on a 11-play, 68 yard drive which was capped off on a 1-yard run by Glasco Martin. The next touchdown was set up when Baylor recovered a fumble, and on the very next play Florence completed a 48-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams which tied the game at 21 apiece.
Baylor was able to go up by three points when they stopped ULM who went for it on fourth down, and they drove down the field and converted a 34-yard field goal. At the end of the half Florence left the game, for reasons unknown right now, with backup Bryce Petty coming in and running the ball to converte on fourth down. Then he completed an 8-yard pass to set up the field goal.
