The Southern Miss Golden Eagles have had the luxury of some time off, as they enter this weekend coming off their bye week. The Eagles gave Auburn all they could handle in their last outing, easily covering the +27 point spread in a 24 – 13 loss.
The North Texas Mean Green were 24 point favorites last weekend, but if you took my advice you easily won your UTEP play. North Texas barely escaped with a 27 – 24 win over the Miners in week 6, but still managed to advance to 5 – 1 on the season.
Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles
Southern Miss holds a 2 – 2 record entering week 7 of the NCAA football season, but their two wins have come against Rice and Jackson State. The Eagles lost to LA Monroe 21 – 20 on September 8, and although the 24 – 13 score looks good on paper against Auburn, the Tigers certainly held them in check.
Auburn held a 21 – 6 lead going to the fourth quarter, and held the Eagles to 2 of 13 on third down conversion attempts. Sophomore QB Jack Abraham went 30 for 44 with 1 TD and 2 INTs in the loss, although the Southern Miss running game was virtually non-existent.
De’Michael Harris and Trivenskey Mosley each had 25 rushing yards against Auburn last time out, and that about covers the ground game issues.
Quez Watkins led all receivers with 48 yards, although he did find the end zone for the Eagles only TD of the game. Watkins was one of 9 receivers that caught a pass from Abraham, while Jaylond Adams caught a team-leading 8 receptions in the loss. Adams is questionable this weekend with an elbow injury.
North Texas Mean Green
The North Texas Mean Green are a mere two points away from being 6 – 0 on the season. Only a 2 point loss to LA Tech has given them the blemish on their 5 – 1 record entering this weekend.
Junior QB Mason Fine is having himself quite a productive 2018 season. While Tua Tagovailoa may have 18 TD and 0 INTs for Alabama, Mason Fine is not that far off the mark. Fine has 15 TDs and a single pick on the season. Fine has gone 4 straight outings without an interception, and has a 7 / 0 ratio in the last 3 games.
Junior wideout Rico Bussey Jr. is slowly becoming Fine’s favorite target, having caught 8 TD passes already. Bussey caught only 7 TD passes last season, so he is on pace to smash his numbers from a year ago. Fine and Bussey connected 8 times with one score in the 27 – 24 win over UTEP last weekend.
The last time North Texas was favored by a number this high over Southern Miss, the Mean Green easily covered and won. That result came in 2013, however, so no one in these uniforms was here for that.
The total seems a little high considering that the S. Miss defense is ranked in the top-20 in a few categories. Remember though, competition comes into play when you look at average stats. Again, I’ll say wins over Rice and Jackson State really don’t scream out as impressive to anyone.
