UTEP Miners

Southern Miss shuts out UTEP


HATTIESBURG – Southern Miss did get the win over the winless UTEP Miners, but it wasn’t pretty.

The Golden Eagles’ offense missed three great scoring opportunities in the first half, but thanks to the USM defense, the 24-0 score was good enough to push USM’s record to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in Conference USA.

Southern Miss welcomes UTEP for homecoming


Southern Miss celebrated a big win last week and hopes to celebrate again this week when it hosts UTEP in its 81st homecoming football game.

Last week, the Golden Eagles came from behind to beat previously undefeated UTSA 31-29 in San Antonio, Texas, in a game in which Keon Howard quarterbacked in place of the injured Kwadra Griggs.
