South Alabama (5-1, 2-0 Sun Belt) won three consecutive matchups and came away with a 41-34 victory over the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks as Carter Bradley completed 25-of-33 passes for 420 yards with three touchdowns. Devin Voisin caught seven passes for 141 yards, Caullin Lacy finished with 133 receiving yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions, and Jalen Wayne caught two TDs on five receptions with 127 yards.
