Through 1 Quarter
Although the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks were the underdogs at kickoff, they’ve since taken control of the game. They have emerged as the frontrunner after one quarter and are ahead of the Troy Trojans 7 to nothing. Both teams won their last games, so Louisiana-Monroe is looking to continue their success while spoiling Troy’s.
The Warhawks have yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.
