The series history between these two Louisiana schools is very short-lived. In fact, they have met on the football field just three times in their history. All three games have taken place since the year 2003. In the three games of the series, the Warhawks have scored a combined seven points. All three games were played in Death Valley, on Saturday it will become the fourth game in Baton Rouge for these two schools.

The 2003 season was a magical year for the LSU Tigers, it was the first time they won a national championship since the 1950s. In 1958 under head coach Paul Dietzel, the Tigers won the national championship. In 2003 when these two teams met, LSU would eventually get over the hump under head coach Nick Saban. The team was led by quarterback Matty Mauck who threw for three touchdowns in the game. In the second and third quarters combined, the Tigers outscored ULM 42-0 as they cruised to the win 49-7.

The 2010 season wasn’t near as good as the 2003 campaign when these two teams met on the field. However, no one could possibly sneeze at an 11-2 campaign that ended with a win in the Cotton Bowl.

The defense dominated this contest against the Warhawks. The trio of LSU defenders each ended the game with an interception with 128 yards on their returns, one going for a touchdown. Patrick Peterson, Ron Brooks, and Craig Loston each come away with one. Brooks turned his interception into a touchdown.

The Tigers dominated as they led 44-0 by the end of the third quarter. LSU won 51-0 to improve to 9-1 and 6-0 in Death Valley on the season.

When the two teams met in 2014, the Tigers were 2-0 and coming off a win over Wisconsin and Sam Houston State. The No. 10 team was looking to keep things rolling against the Warhawks. They would blank them once again as the Tigers won 31-0 to improve to 3-0 before the wheels came off for this team. They finished 8-5 on the year and it turned out to be the beginning of the end for Les Miles.

The Tigers struggled in the first half on offense against the Warhawks as they scored just 10 points. Darrel Williams scored the first touchdown with 13:11 remaining in the first half. Williams would score another in the third quarter and Leonard Fournette followed that up with one of his own. Fournette’s run accounted for 24 of his 52 yards on the day. ULM was able to bottle him up for the most part, but he was able to find paydirt. That essentially put the game away at 24-0, Kenny Hilliard added one more touchdown run

Going into this Saturday, we have two struggling teams. Although LSU is the heavy favorite for this one.
