Southern Miss ends regular season at Marshall


It’s Thanksgiving week, but don’t expect the Southern Miss football team to get into any kind of celebratory mood before Saturday. And even that is not a sure thing.

The Golden Eagles (7-4 overall, 5-2 Conference USA) play at Marshall (7-4, 4-3) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in their final regular-season game of 2017.

USM starts conference slate with North Texas at home


HATTIESBURG - Saturday marks the beginning of the Conference USA season for the Southern Miss football team, and Golden Eagle coach Jay Hopson knows beating North Texas won’t be an easy task.

“We know we have a tough, excellent football team coming to town,” Hopson said.

Game time at M.M. Roberts Stadium is 6 p.m. Saturday.

Griggs to start vs Southern


Southern Miss’ last football victory without Nick Mullens starting at quarterback came in the 2011 season.

Six years later, at 6 p.m. this Saturday against Southern (La.), the Golden Eagles try to change that as well as get into the win column this season with another starting quarterback, this one named Kwadra Griggs.
