Kicker Dakota Warren appears to be snapping out of a bad spell. After banking in 25-yarder in the first half against Southern Miss, he made a 47-yarder into the wind and has now made seven of his last eight after opening the year five-of-11.
"I'm starting to get out of a slump," Warren said. "I'm much more comfortable than I was at the start of the season. Last year I had a lot of success early on. Kicking is all about confidence, it's 75 percent mental, and I'm starting to get confidence. It gets easier."
Of his 25-yard bank shot, he said, "If that had been one yard further back I would have missed it."
