When things go right, football can be a game of pitch-and-catch. But for the Warhawks, quarterback Garrett Smith and receiver Rashon Ceaser are listed as "highly questionable" for today's game. Smith won the QB's job in training camp, and completed 79 percent of his passes in the first two games, including 23-for-29 against Georgia. But he missed last week's game because of a shoulder ailment. Earnest Carrington, who has completed 40.7 percent of his passes and has been intercepted five times against one TD throw, will make his second consecutive start. Ceaser is third in receptions (193) and fourth in receiving yards (2,423) on the ULM career list. But he has had ankle problems most of the season. Ajalen Holley, who specializes in crossing patterns, and Marcus Green, who is a threat on slants and hitches, are the keys in the horizontal-passing game. A Warhawk weapon is the quarterback-lead sweep. ULM quarterbacks have rushed for 474 non-sack yards, an average of 4.35 yards per carry. Freshman running back Ben Luckett averages 5.7 yards, mostly on rushes to his left. The Warhawks usually align in wide formations, but they employ a "heavy" package -- linebacker Hunter Kissinger is added as an edge blocker -- on short-yardage situations. ULM averages 5.36 rushing yards on third-and-1-to-3 situations.

LOUISIANA-MONROE DEFENSE

CB 29 Marcus Hubbard 5-9 173 Fr.

The Warhawks' 3-3-5 stack defense, similar to San Diego State's scheme, relies on pressure, unpredictability and mystery-source blitzes. It is football's version of the full-court press, with the outside linebackers often creating a five-man-front, and hybrid defensive backs portraying linebackers. That leaves the corners on proverbial islands, although they, too, have occasional orders to blitz. It's a feast-or-famine defense. The Warhawks made 68 backfield tackles, including 17 sacks, and 24 quarterback hurries. But they also have been burned for 81 rushes of 10-plus yards and 54 completions of 15-plus yards. They have relinquished 44 "explosive" plays (rushes of 20-plus yards, catches of 25-plus yards). Point defender Gerrand Johnson has two-gap responsibilities Michael Johnson and Cody Robinson align on the edge as defensive ends or in the B gaps as stand-up tackles. Middle linebacker Hunter Kissinger, who often is 7 yards off the line of scrimmage, often is the lone second-level defender. Johnson is the most intriguing. He earned a history degree with a 4.0 GPA, and now is pursuing a master's in Colonial Latin American History. In his free time, he works with homeless veterans.
