Saturday, November the 24th brings you an exciting matchup between two Conference USA teams as Southern Miss travels down to the Sun Bowl to take on Texas El Paso in the conference finale for both of these teams.
Southern Mississippi is coming off a one point victory over Louisiana Tech last weekend, While UTEP suffered a 24 point loss at the hands of Western Kentucky 40-16.
Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles
Southern Miss is one win away from becoming Bowl eligible in their final game of the year, and they should have no problem gaining admission against these lowly Miners. The Golden Eagles have finished the season on a strong point winning two of their last three to set up a chance to go Bowling next month.
Three of Southern Mississippi’s five losses have come at three points or less, so, a missed field goal here, an incomplete pass there, or a single three and out really could’ve been the difference maker for this team to limp into a bowl, to possibly being invited to a much more prestigious one.
The Golden Eagles played really good against the rush last week, allowing only 68 yards on 23 attempts, but they allowed 243 through the air on 27-43 passing. Their own rushing game took a hit too, gaining only 54 yards on 33 attempts for a minuscule 1.6 yards per rush. That will have to change on Saturday afternoon.
Texas El Paso Miners
The UTEP Miners have had one of those types of seasons that the players, coaches and fans alike, all want to forget that it ever even existed in the first place. The only game this team won all year was against Rice, who has lost 11 games in a row up to this point of the season.
The Miners offense has only averaged a paltry 18.6 points per game this year, while their defense has allowed an average of 32.2 points per game. Southern Miss is averaging just under 25 a game, so you can see where this one might be headed already.
Last week the Miners only gained 50 yards rushing on 20 attempts. The Golden Eagles only gave up 68 last week, so UTEP had better rely on their passing game if they want to stay close in this game. They had 342 yards on 15-34 passing against the Hilltoppers.
