Heading into the 2012 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, few stars burn as bright as Ragin' Cajun kicker/punter Brett Baer.

Most will remember Baer's iconic game winning kick in last year's New Orleans Bowl, but the senior from Mississippi says he's put last year's successes behind him and is focused on the task at hand.

It's been a challenge for me the whole year. Coming off the great season last year and trying to not so much forget about it, but carry it over. The biggest thing is trying not to live in the past, but to use it as motivation and confidence.

Baer finished the 2012 regular season sweeping the All-Conference special teams categories, earning All-Sunbelt honors at both kicker and punter.
