ULM hosts Georgia State for homecoming on Saturday as Warhawks look to improve 4-0 in the Sun Belt. Freshman Quarterback Caleb Evans is a big reason for the Warhawks success as he’s third in the league in total offense. Head Coach Matt Viator says Evans decision making is getting better and better.

ULM has trailed at one point in all three of its Sun Belt victories. Viator says this team has done well in overcoming adversity.
