MONROE, La. -- Justice Hansen threw for a school-record 520 yards and four touchdowns, rushed for two more scores, and Arkansas State kept its hopes alive for another Sun Belt Conference title with a 67-50 victory over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday night.
The Red Wolves (7-3, 6-1), who shared the conference title last year and won it outright in 2015, will be hosts to Troy next week in a regular-season finale. Troy and Appalachian State are also 6-1 in the conference.
Arkansas State had a conference-record 781 yards of offense to 590 for the Warhawks (4-7, 4-4) as the teams combined for 1,371 in a game in which six touchdown drives lasted 91 seconds or less.
Hansen was 26-of-38 passing with his four TD passes tying him for the Sun Belt single-season record of 32. Justin McInnis had a career-high 211 yards receiving on nine catches, Chris Murray 99 yards and two TDs on five catches and Warren Wand rushed for 173 yards on 21 carries with a score. Kyle Martin had two of Arkansas State's three interceptions.
ULM's Caleb Evans was 21 of 37 for 454 yards passing and four touchdowns but was intercepted three times. His final pick came while being sacked and Blaise Taylor returned it 85 yards for the game's final score with 56 seconds left.
Hansen's 4-yard pass to Christian Booker with 5:13 left before halftime gave the Red Wolves the lead for good at 28-21. Sawyer Williams' season-long 46-yard field goal with 1:42 remaining made it 60-50.
Marcus Green had 193 yards receiving and RJ Turner 111 with a touchdown apiece for ULM. Evans also ran for two scores. Green had a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and finished with 418 total yards, the second-best single-game mark in the FBS this season behind San Diego State's Rashaad Penny 429.
